Student Federation of India criticized it, and said, “The defacement of public property is bad thing. But the question is who is creating situation that has been leading to such bad things on the campus?”

SHIMLA-The objectionable writings on the walls of the Arts block and Law Department buildings and on the campus road against the Vice-Chancellor and the Chief Minister over the controversial fee hike and banning of the Students Council elections ignited a fresh trouble in the Himachal Pradesh University here today.

The police have lodged an FIR under the Disfigurement Act against unidentified persons for the objectionable and defamatory wall writings against the V-C and CM after the objectionable slogans were detected by the university staff and the police.

The slogans have raised the concern of the teaching fraternity and students as the issue has fuelled a fresh row in the trouble-torn campus where the police have launched a hunt to identify students leaders in agitation against the fee hike. The high-powered committee has submitted its report to the government which is yet to take a final call on the issue.

The objectionable wall writings have defaced the public property and buildings as the campus is not owned by anyone, resented students and teachers on the campus. Both students and university administration and V-C are equally to be blamed for the ugly situation, they added. The members of the joint front of the student wings blamed the VC and the state government for the deteriorating law and order situation.

Student Federation of India campus president Rahul Kumar said, “The defacement of public property is bad thing. But the question is who is creating situation that has been leading to such bad things on the campus?”

The students belonging to the SFI-ABVP joint front justified the wall writings with derogatory slogans on the campus. But the NSUI has remained tightlipped on the issue.

Himachal Shuts Down All Educational Institutes A Week After Re-Opening 



Himachal Pradesh Educational Institutes closed again

Shimla-A week after re-opening for regular classes, the Himachal Pradesh Government had to shut down all government and private schools, colleges, ITIs, polytechnics, engineering colleges and coaching institutes from 11th to 25th November 2020, for students, teaching and non-teaching staff amid alarming surge in COVID-19 cases and fatalities.

The decision was taken in a Cabinet meeting held on November 10, 2020. It’s pertinent to mention that the state government had re-opened the school for the students of 9th to 12th from November 2. However, during the past few days, hundreds of teachers and several students tested positive in various schools, especially in Mandi district.

Meanwhile, the unpreparedness of the state government came to light as the largest medical facility – IGMC Shimla- ran out of space in isolation wards for COVID-19 patients. It’s packed to full capacity. Reportedly, another dedicated COVID-19 hospital – DDU Shimla- was also running out of space. The government has also failed to establish make-shift hospitals, which it had been promising for the past couple of months. However, Chief Minister Jairam Thakur had been maintaining in media statements that the government was prepared for all eventualities.

Questions have also been raised over the quality of protective gear provided to health staff as several officials tested positive at a COVID-19 hospital in Mandi district.
