| | Ranchi | in Ranchi

National University of Study and Research in Law (NUSRL) at Kanke has been dragged to yet another indefinite lock-down mess in less than six months with students’ protest against their unfulfilled demands entering into second day on Wednesday.

The senior officials of the university did try hot and cold blows to dismantle protesting students, including a wee-hour show-cause notice to at least five senior students asking them why they shouldn’t be rusticated from University during current semester for acts of “indiscipline by resorting to leaving classes and sitting on Dharna in the University campus, inciting students particularly of the first year to leave classes and obstruct functioning of the university. According to the university notice, the agitating students are part of a group of students who don’t want strict rule of attendance and discipline to be enforced in the University.

A troop of armed police force with around 25 police personnel were also sent to the university for allegedly drive protesting students away from pathway and get the main door opened, but SP (Rural) Rajkumar Lakra denied any such movement saying that the forces directed to Birsa Agricultural University, which is close to NUSRL, might have mistakenly moved towards there.

Though the students didn’t appear obstructing vehicles carrying essential goods inside the campus, local police station in-charge claimed that the students were ensuring their own food safety and availability for the period of their protest, but were not allowing faculties inside the campus.

“This is not right. They have the right to protest, but they will have to vacate pathways and sit somewhere else and they must unlock the main gate,” said Kanke SHO Rajiv Ranjan.

“The problem is that we don’t have full time teaching faculties and everyone in top management is ‘Acting’ here, perhaps this is why no action appears on ground except suppressing ones. We have ‘Acting’ Vice Chancellor (In-Charge) who has no right to call any management committee meeting which he has been cheerfully enjoying at his whims, we have ‘Acting’ Registrar who despite being an applicant for Professorship himself has been given free hand to scrutinize applications of fellow applicants, and we have an ‘Acting’ Chancellor under whose guidance the Vice Chancellor and management committee has been taking all kinds of legal-illegal decisions,” said one from a group of students taking media queries.

 Registrar (In-Charge) Srinivas Murthy chose not to speak on the matter.
