CM urged to order vigilance probe on prize issue

Sonepat: The Haryana Students Welfare Association today urged Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala to order a vigilance probe into the complaints of the girl students of Hindu Girls College, Sonepat about the giving of Rs 501 instead of Rs 1,100 as announced in the annual prize distribution function held on February 26. And the association also demanded to take stern action against the college authorities for duping the girl students on this account.

In a press release, it pointed out that as many as ten girl students were selected under the ‘role of honour’ category for granting the amount of Rs 1,100 each, but these students were awarded cheques of Rs 501 in the function. According to the association, when the girl students protested, they were asked to satisfy themselves with this amount. This caused a widespread resentment among the girl students. The association stated that a vigilance inquiry into the episode is likely to expose the misdeeds of the college authorities.

It also alleged that the medals, commendation certificates and the cheques were taken back from the girl students immediately after the function was over on February 26, but these were given again at the convocation function of the college, which was held on the following day, on February 27. OC
