Shiml:  The Himachal Pradesh University is again echoing with protesting voices. This time, the students are not led by any student organization or political ideology.

About 150 students of the MBA-Rural Development Department, M.Sc. Environmental Sciences, Master of Fine Arts and Department of Disaster Management are protesting over their demands regarding the notification of the new Faculty and Department, classrooms, computer labs and recruitment of teachers to start the classes smoothly.

The file related to the amendment in the University statute is pending with the Governor for the last two years. Neither the university nor the governor has bothered to clear it,

said a student.

Integrated Institute of Himalayan Studies Protest

The students started a chain hunger strike on Wednesday. The strike continued on the third day. The students also staged a ‘Dharna’ in front of the Vice-Chancellor office.

On the third day, Vivek Negi, M.Sc. Environmental Science, and Tenzin, MBA-Rural Development, continued the chain hunger strike.

Students marched from the Integrated Institute of Himalayan Studies department to the Vice-Chancellor’s office. For about two hours, students protested outside the office.

Students tried to enter the office but were pushed back using police force. The students alleged the policemen not only manhandled the students on chain hunger strike, but the girl students were abused too by male policemen.

The growing aggression among protesting students forced the VC to come out of the office. The VC did not show much concern towards the aforesaid demands, alleged the students, said the Morcha.

The pace of work on the top floor of the Science Block-A is very slow. Only two laborers are given the entire responsibility of the construction, said the students.

The academic environment is adversely affected and the project work of the outgoing batch is hampered, said another student. 

The VC himself is reluctant. Otherwise, if he has a little concern towards the distress of the students, their reasonable demands, and career, he has emergency power vested in his position provided through the ordinance. He can use this power in such times, said a student.

The students warned the protest will continue until all the demands are fulfilled. The students said they want a genuine and permanent solution, not just temporary arrangements.

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.
