RTMNU students on dharna at VC office

NAGPUR: Demanding to restart admission process after they failed to meet deadline due to delayed revaluation results, the students of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) stages agitation at the Vice-Chancellor office on Saturday. However, when the VC refused to heed to their demand, the agitating students decided to stage dharna at the VC office till the university reopens on Monday morning.

The future of hundreds of students of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) is at stake as students have not been admitted to their next academic sessions. These students had failed due to less marks or due to errors in checking the exam papers and they had applied for revaluation of exam papers.

The last date of admission for all the courses was September 6 and students were instructed to complete the procedures within the framed time period. Many students had applied for revaluation of their papers but they didn’t know that revaluation result will be declared after September 10.

This created a havoc in the minds of students as institutes and university refused to admit them after the date. Students from different streams and colleges approached the university and met Vice-Chancellor SP Kane but in vain.

Students alleged that even after the revaluation result came late and students had passed in the results, the university denied giving admissions to them. The students said their future was at stake and university was responsible for declaring the results late. They demanded that admission process be restarted so that all the students were admitted in their respective colleges.

During the agitation, the VC reportedly called city police. He said that revaluation was just one of the facilities and students won’t get admission through it. Meanwhile, the students have decided to stage dharna in front of the VC’s office till the university opens on Monday.
