The protest of the fisheries department would continue, said the students after an unfruitful meeting with Dairy And Fisheries Minister Gulzar Singh Ranike at his residence in Chandigarh on Tuesday.
Ranike told the students that as of now “there are no funds available with the Punjab government to hire students in the state’s fisheries department”.
Talking to Newsline, Ranike said on the phone, “The students are misguided. They feel that government jobs are the only option after fisheries degree. I told them that finance department is under severe crunch and the opening of jobs in state fisheries may take more than one or two years. But I gave them self-employment ideas to which they did not pay heed. I told them that we have 50% subsidy schemes for women in fisheries and they can also pursue post-graduation but they are in no mood to listen. As far as government jobs are concerned, we have vacancies but no funds. They have to wait and whenever hiring opens, first priority will be given to GADVASU students.”
Ranike added that “finance department has also not given nod to his proposal of hiring GADVASU students”.
“We are waiting for their response to creating budget to arrange for salaries of these students if they are hired but there is no response yet. It is a long process,” he said.
The students, however, alleged that the “university had cheated them”.

Five students went to meet Ranike on Tuesday. Khushwinder Singh, students’ representative, said, “There was no meeting. It was like normal sangat darshan and students struggled to meet the minister while the university promised a proper meeting. We have been given no assurances of jobs in state fisheries department and thus chain hunger strike will continue now.”
