JNRM students’  stir
 Students of Jawaharlal Nehru Rajkeeya Mahavidyalaya (JNRM) here staged a protest in the college premises on Monday alleging violation of different provisions of the Lyngdoh Commission Rules. As per reports, a memorandum of demands which include direct election for the Students’ Council, setting up a Grievance Redressal Mechanism, post of joint secretary, grant of campaigning period and bar on entry of political parties during election period held on November  11 was submitted to the Principal of the institute. However, the management failed to take any action on the demands and conducted the elections in the seminar hall on Monday.
The president of Students’ Council, JNRM, Mr Pradeep Chakraborty, said that many students couldn’t participate in the election, which was conducted in violation of the Lyngdoh Commission recommendation. Moreover, the timing of the election is wrong as practical exams of many departments of the college are presently underway, he said.
