With UT Administration rejecting the proposal to take over Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital (HMCH),Sector 26,the students on Wednesday staged a massive protest in the college.
The students have been staging protests since the day the Panjab University (PU) Syndicate decided to issue a notice of disaffiliation to the college as the college failed to have 100 per cent regular faculty,along with other issues.
Though the college has filed a reply to the notice,the PU authorities are yet to take a decision.
The students were demanding that either PU takes the college under its ambit or the UT Administration takes over the college. A detailed project report was made and sent to the UT Administration for consideration. The administration had issued a letter a few days ago to the Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital Society saying that it will not be able to take over the college.
Talking to Newsline,the secretary of the society,Dr Y S Basra said,We got an intimation from UT that it will not able to take over the college. I think that the estimates which were sent to the administration was on very high side. Now with the new directions issued by the Council of Homeopathic the college will now need just 24 teachers rather than 37 teachers
We will sent a revised proposal to the Ayush Department again and hope for the some positive feedback, he added.
Meanwhile college principal K K Dhiman said,The college has asked the protesting students to meet the management at 5 pm on Thursday to discuss all the issues.
