The protesters raised slogans against the college management. Members of farmer unions were also present at the protest. Students said the college was demanding fee from them even as physical classes were not taking place.

They demanded that the college should take only tuition fee and if any student wants to leave the college, migration fee should not be charged from them.

They said if their demands were not met by August 14, they would intensify their protest. Rajinder Singh Dhanoa, Assistant Director, Academics, Baba Farid College, said, “As per the guidelines of the Punjabi University, Patiala, colleges have been asked to start online classes from August 1. So, the management asked the students to take admission and pay the fee.”

He said, “We have told students that if they have economic problems, they can submit an application to their class teacher or head of department, so that the management can give them time to pay or even allow them to pay fee in instalments.”
