Silchar, Aug 2: Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) protested strongly against the alleged irregularities and anomalies in the current admission process of Cachar College and Gurucharan College of the town. The issue of irregularities in admissions in the colleges was first raised on last Wednesday by the Parishad.
The ABVP members met the principal of Cachar College on the issue and demanded arrest of the unscrupulous persons involved in the racket within the next 48 hours, failing which the Parishad would be left with no other altertive but to go for a massive agitation against the authorities concerned. ABVP members also held a demonstration in the premises of Gurucharan College. Thereafter, ABVP leader, members and supporters of Cachar College and Gurucharan College jointly marched down the main thoroughfares of the town to converge before the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar and held hour long demonstration, drawing the attention of the higher authorities of the administration.
ABVP further alleged that tiol Students’ Union of India (NSUI) members also have a hand in the admission syndicate. They demanded the immediate arrest of Abhijit Paul and Javed Akhtar Laskar who are believed to be part of the syndicate which has taken over the college admission process. They said only after a thorough investigation, mes of all the accused persons would come out.
ABVP believes that the kingpin of the organized syndicate involved in the racket is still at large. As a result of which, ineligible candidates are getting undue benefits and deserving students are deprived of getting admission in the courses of their choice. A proper inquiry should be initiated against the accused. They also demanded a clarification from the respective college authorities over the issue.
