The students of the University of Gour Banga (UGB) hit streets today seeking support from citizens in strengthening their movements against several alleged anomalies both financial and academic. The movement surprised the citizens as the students publicized their grievances and brought the issues out of the varsity campus for the first time.
The students decked with banners and festoons inscribed with the appeal of supporting their movements took out a rally from Netaji Subhas Bose statue and traversed along the main streets in Malda.
They alleged that academic activities in UGB were not taken care of the varsity authorities. Moreover, several financial irregularities took place in full knowledge of the UGB authorities.
According to the students, the vice chancellor and few other officials were not entertaining their grievances and so they were compelled to draw attention of intelligentsias into their plight.
The aggrieved students held several street-corners also and sought interference from the chief minister Mamata Banerjee and education minister Partha Chatterjee into the ongoing crises in UGB.
Vice chancellor Prof Gopalchandra Mishra was not available in campus today.
The students entered the campus with the rally and indulged in sloganeering also. They said that their movements would continue.
