hpu fee hike protest

What began as a peaceful agitation for student rights was unexpectedly transformed into a conflict by the state machinery yesterday. Today, the scenario is such that students leaving their political ideologies behind have united in one voice against the inappropriate Government policies.

Today, protesting students– who had been rigorously yet peacefully striving for fee reversal and re-instating of SCA elections in the University campus, have been compelled by the heinous act of the HP police, to take to the streets of the State Capital.

Students compelled to stay out of the university (which is converted into a police cantonment), today gathered in a large number in front of the SP office (Shimla), under able leadership of SFI and ABVP (who stand as one body without badges).

The joint front has declared that atrocities and self-centered attitude of the State Government and the incongruous act of the State Police is highly condemnable and it will not be tolerated any further.

A Warning to the HP Govt.

The student leaders from the joint front have called out to the people of Himachal Pradesh to come out in numbers to support their fight for a cause. They have drawn public attention towards the wrong doing of the police, the authorities that demand such action from the police, and the main issue of whopping hike in the fee structure across all courses in the Himachal Pradesh University.

Students have appealed to the parents to understand that this unfitting rise in fee, and calling off of the elections for SCA (only body that can question the University authorities against such anti-student policies), is not at all in favour of their wards. It will not be justice with the present and the forthcoming students of the HPU. Students have requested one and all to come out and join them in their peaceful protest against the suppressive authorities.

What happened in the University yesterday was really disgraceful, irrespective of the light it is seen in. It goes on to show how the State machinery can be misused to oppress human rights.

Disabled HPU Students Clears UGC NET

Shimla-Crossing milestones in academics, disabled students of Himachal Pradesh continue to achieve what is otherwise considered insurmountable for them.

Eleven differently-abled students have cleared UGC’s National Eligibility Test (NET). Two of them qualified for the Junior Research Fellowship. Five of these students are visually impaired.

It’s important to mention that disabled students had to fight a legal battle to claim their right to higher education in Himachal Pradesh University. Even after ‘The Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill – 2016’ was passed, the students had to fight for its implementation as the government did not make it easy for them.

Two students who qualified for the JRF include Saveen Janha, an M.Phil in Hindi, and Pankaj Sharma, P.hD in Tourism Administration. Both are physically disabled, informed Ajai Shrivastava, a member of the State Advisory Board on Disability and HPU Executive Council (EC).

Indu Kumari, a visually impaired student, who is pursuing her M.A. in Political Science, cleared the NET examination in her very first attempt. Similarly, visually impaired Roma Negi, a resident of Rampur, has cleared the exam in History in her first attempt. She wants to pursue her P.hD from HP University.

Other names include Anuj Kumar (Economics), Vinod Sharma (Political Science), Jasbir Lubanand (Political Science), Vinod Sharma Yogacharya (Yoga), Priyanka Thakur (Law), Ajay Kumar (History). Some of these students have cleared the NET examination twice. Raj Kumar is a Ph.D in Education and has cleared the NET exam in the same. He had also passed the NET examination in History and this time cleared the exam in Political Science.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sikander Kumar has congratulated all these students and appreciated their hard-work despite facing hardships due to their disability. He said these students have brought laurels to the State.
