UGB Orders Probe into B Ed Examinees’ Complaint: Controller Kept in Dark
MALDA, 15 NOV: After yesterday’s unrest in the University of Gour Banga (UGB) regarding the low marks ascored by the B Ed examinees of a particular private college, the varsity authorities have ordered a probe into the matter. Meanwhile the acting controller of examinations Prof Madhab Chandra Adhikary has alleged that he was kept in dark regarding controversy though the matter was concerned with his department.
This may be mentioned that a faction of Chhatra Parishad (CP) today gheraoed the officiating registrar of the UGB since yesterday morning demanding the revision of marks of recently published B Ed final result of a particular private B Ed college. The students alleged that they were allotted poor marks in internal practical examinations by the vindictive college authorities as they had refused to pay extra sum as illegally charged by the college authorities after their admission.
“We wrote a letter to the UGB authorities on 23 April informing them the unjustified demand of the college authorities. We were then told not to worry as the varsity authorities would be vigilant of the matter. But now we see that the UGB authorities remained silent spectator when the college authorities victimized us,” said the protesting students.
Dr Chakraborty, on the other hand, said: “I conveyed the matter to the vice chancellor. She would decide how to conduct a probe into the matter.” He added that the report of the probe would be submitted shortly.
Meanwhile, Prof Madhab Chandra Adhikary, the controller of examinations (officiating) of the UGB, said: “The matter is concerned with my department. But Dr Chakraborty did not take me into confidence to resolve the matter.” “Despite my sickness I ran to the varsity after being intimated by the VC last night to have a talk with the protestor and to normalize the situation,” Prof Adhikary added.
