Panaji: Even as Shiv Sena took up the issue of extra students at Government College Quepem, Goa University has asked all the colleges to make necessary infrastructure arrangements so that no student is kept in waiting list.
The delegation of Shiv Sena led by Shiv Sena Vice President Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik, South District President Alexy Fernandes, yuva sanghatak and students’ cell head Chetan Pednekar, State Secretary Vandana Chavan, Quepem taluka chief Sanjay Desai and executive member Zygal Lobo met Goa University’s Registrar Y V Reddy.
Sena appraised the Registrar about several students being in waiting list at Government college Quepem in Science and Arts stream. The delegation demanded that Goa University should immediately give NOC for the college for extra classes so that the students can be accommodated.
During the discussion, Reddy told Sena leaders that GU has no objection to the colleges increasing their infrastructure and capacity to accommodate more students. The university will give NOC to the colleges.
He said that there has been no application received from Government College Quepem even though the circular has been issued to all.
Reddy said that the Goa University and even Directorate of Higher Education want that the students should not be put to inconvenience.
Sena has expressed surprise that despite GU agreeing to allow extra capacity, the management of Government College Quepem has been making students to suffer. Sena has threatened of a massive protest near the college, if students are left out.
