Sine Die Not The Solution: Ravenshaw Students
Cuttack: Students of Ravenshaw University on Wednesday expressed displeasure over the authorities’ move to close the varsity sine die.
“Declaring a sine die is not a solution to any issue. The matter can be resolved through discussion. The students staying outside the state will face a lot of difficulties due to this sudden decision taken by the authorities,” a student said.
The varsity authorities had asked the students to vacate the campus and hostel by 10 am.
The move came after hundreds of students of staged a mass demonstration on the campus and gheraoed the vice chancellor’s office, protesting against fee hike and other pressing issues, on Tuesday.
The students under the aegis of Ravenshaw Chhatra Kriyanusthan Committee were opposing the exorbitant hike in fee and the arbitrary decision taken by the university authorities to vacate the hostels by May 28 for carrying out renovation work.
They were also demanding immediate withdrawal of the decision to introduce compulsory meals for hostel inmates and re-introduction of previous instant examination system for final-year students.
