Udupi, March 29, 2016 : A large mob of members of student unions affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and All- College Students Union staged a dharna in front of the Clock Tower here on March 28, Monday demanding action against those responsible for the chaotic results of the semester examination for undergraduate courses held by Mangalore University in December 2015.
Addressing the protesters, Rahul Shetty, student union leader, said that the results of the semester examination held in December 2015 had come as a shock for the students. Some high-scoring students had to bear the mortification of scoring low marks. The allocation of marks for various subjects too was not proper.
Though these anomalies were brought to the notice of the university authorities by the students, parents and the college authorities, the varsity’s response had been indifference. The university should respond properly to the grievances of the students immediately, he said.
Rahul K.M., secretary of the city unit of the ABVP, said that many students had applied for MBA course and even paid the fees for that course. But the delay and later the problems arising out of improper allocation of marks had put their future in jeopardy.
The university administration was squarely responsible for the chaos. The university officials were making irresponsible statements on the issue.
The Vice-Chancellor should take action to resolve the issue. The students would not hesitate to intensify their agitation, he said. A delegation of students submitted a memorandum at the Udupi DC’s chamber.
