The students of the CBM college of arts and science protested inside the college on Monday night, 8th Feb’16 against the management of the college. The students had no intention of stopping the protest before the college completed their demands.
The students have been complaining and requesting the management for nearly a year now about the
- Basic facilities
- Teaching staff
- Good infrastructure
"The talks were held but when we asked the secretary of the college to appoint additional staff as there were just 24 teachers right now, they said they would not appoint any new teachers. They asked us to take the transfer certificate and leave the college," said a student.
The Tahsildhar, M Subramanian said that the college principal, secretary, students representatives, police officials and the joint-director of collegiate education participated in the meetings with the students.
"The management said that they would set up better infrastructure and provide the basic amenities to the students. But when the students demanded that additional staff be appointed immediately, the management did not agree to this. So the talks have again hit a road block," he said adding that they would soon hold talks again, this week.
The secretary of the college, C M Ramaraj said that they will have a meeting in a couple of days and will try to resolve the issue as soon as possible. "We will sort this issue soon. We will meet again soon and discuss the demands," he said.
