Demanding not to remove PG courses from Ghanapriya Women’s College, students of the college protested in the college premises on Wednesday.
Addressing media at the sidelines of the protest, games and sports secretary of the college Mayanglambam Langlen said that the authority concerned has taken up steps to remove PG courses from the college.
In this regard, the union of the college had submitted a memorandum to the vice chancellor of the DM University on September 23 requesting to withdraw the decision. The request was made stating that they have deliberately taken admission in the college for the preference of studying in the women’s college and avoiding co-education.
Besides, the number of PG seats available in the state is very limited. The problem of unavailability of seats have heightened due to ongoing pandemic as people hesitate to go outside the state, she added.
She further said that despite urging the authority concerned with such genuine reason, they didn’t heed a single response till date. Such irresponsible acts of the state government is highly condemnable, she said.
Langlen appealed to authorities concerned to materialise their demand at earliest or to face an intensified agitation.
During the agitation, students launched various slogans such as ‘Release PG admission notification soon’, ‘remove DM University vice-chancellor from his post for not listening students’ demand’, ‘save women’s college’, ‘don’t try to close down GP Women’s College’, among others.
