Students at suffering end due to tussle between professors and Government

Nagpur News: The ongoing tussle between Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University professors and Government is drastically affecting the students and their future. This rift has already affected the practical examinations of the students and now students are tensed regarding the fate of written examinations. Written examinations will be delayed following this strike of professors. The major sufferers of this strike are the final year students who are preparing for other competitive examinations also. All the professors have decided the boycott the University examination as their last resort to press for their demands.

Educationalists said, students preparing for Union Public Service Commission and Maharashtra Public Service Commission will suffer a lot due to this delay in the written examination of RTMNU. They will get very less time to prepare for these examinations. Also, students aspiring to do masters degree in M Tech and MBA will get less time for preparations. If the written examinations are delayed for a long time, it may clash with the dates of competitive examinations. The post graduate students will not be able to sit for Ph D and NET SET examination due to delay in RTMNU examination. Thus, students will again stand at the receiving end of this tussle between professors and Government.

It is noted that 5000 professors from Nagpur University and around 40,000 professors from across the State are participating in the strike.

Adv Abhijeet Wanjari, Senate member, RTMNU, said that this strike is directly affecting the future of students and they would lag behind in all the national-level competitive examinations.

Babanrao Taywade, Principal, Dhanwate National College, added, Government have turned Nelson’s eye towards professors demands and problems. Teachers have protested in many ways to press for their demands but Government was in no mood to give a ear to their demands. Boycotting examinations is the last resort left with the teachers to attract attention of the Government.
