Closure of agri course at Faridkot Government Brijindra College opposed

Students, retd teachers begin relay fast

Faridkot, September 13

To oppose the closure of BSc (agriculture) course at Faridkot Government Brijindra College, many retired teachers, students and social activists have started a chain hunger strike here.

While students of the college have been holding a sit-in at the gate of the college for the past many months, social activists and teachers have joined hands with them.

The students alleged that no admissions were made to the BSc course for the past two years on the pretext that the college was not fulfilling some conditions under the Punjab State Council for Agricultural Education Act.

It is alleged that many colleges in the state were found not complying with the rules, as mentioned in the Act, in order to provide necessary infrastructure for imparting practical knowledge to the students. — TNS
