Girl students protest not being promoted
Students of the Government College for Girls here protested on Monday over their college decision to not promote them to the next class for failing in half of their subjects.
The protest also led to traffic disruption as over 100 women students blocked the traffic outside the college in Sector 14 and shouted slogans against Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU), Rohtak.
The MDU had issued guidelines and ordered principals not to allow admissions in the next class to the first year students for failing in subjects. The students were demanding admission in the second year. "One precious year will go in vain by the decision. Students can clear papers in the second attempt," a protesting student said.
Sushila Sharma, principal of the college and other senior officials assured the protesters that the issue would be discussed with the concerned authorities.
