A day after Newsline highlighted the presence of micro-slips in the washrooms of the Post Graduate Government College,Sector 11,nothing much seemed to have been changed on the second day of the examinations.
One of the members of the flying squad found that no frisking of students was done at the center before the students were allowed to enter the examination centers and mobile phones were also present inside the centers.
Fellow,Panjab University and Principal Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital,Sector 26,K K Dhiman told Newsline,I visited the examination centers of colleges as member of the flying squad and found that no frisking of students was done. All the bags and mobile phones were lying inside the examination rooms.
I tried to contact the college principal J S Raghu,but he did not take the calls. Being the principal,he could have picked up the phone calls, said Dhiman.
Moreover,a number of micro-slips and photostat material were littered in the campus even on the second day of the examination. When asked,the Panjab University Controller of Examination,Dr Parvinder Singh said,The duty of the varsity was to send the flying squads and that we did. It should be the duty of the college staff to frisk the students and to adhere to the rules. If the principal did not pick the call,I cannot ask him to do so.
However,though many attempts were made to contact the principal,he did not respond.
On April 2,the team of Newsline had found that all the washrooms of the college were filled with micro-slips of answers and photocopies of chapters.
Protest held over roll nos
Some of the students of Post Graduate Government College,Sector 11,on Wednesday,alleged that the college authorities discriminated against certain students while giving roll numbers to the students.
Students gathered inside the college premises held that as many as 17 students of the BA-II year have been denied roll numbers this year. One of the students,Ashwani Kumar,said that committee did not give him a roll number because of less attendance,but a student with roll number 7395 got the roll number despite the fact that he was 53 lectures short in one of the subjects.
I brought it to the notice of the principal,but to no effect, he added. Principal J S Raghu said that those who were short of attendances were not given roll numbers as per the rules.
However,another student said that if the college has to adhere to the rule of 75 per cent,then no student having less lectures should be permitted to take the examination.
Earlier also,some of the students of Government Arts College,Sector 10 and Government College for Girls Sector 11 had staged protests over the issue of roll numbers.
