UDALGURI, Aug 25 � The Udalguri College Students� Union (UCSU) in a memorandum submitted to the Deputy Commissioner of Udalguri district on August 19 last compared any bandhs frequently given by various organisations with corruption and demanded to free all the educational institutions of the district so that the students could not be made victims of such corruptions
The memorandum of the UCSU observed that such frequently called bandhs are not less than corruption and the district administration should act promptly to free all the educational institutions from the so called bandhs which have paralysed the academic scenario in the district to a great extent.
It is to be noted that the Udalguri College Students� Union responded to the clarion call of the Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare and brought out a massive long march to the DC office where students of three higher educational institutions of the town Udalguri College, ASBOFORD Academy and Bihuram Boro Memorial College with placards and banners on August 19 last took out a rally and submitted a memorandum to the DC to free schools and colleges of the district from the effect of the bandhs randomly called by various organisations.
Meanwhile, responding quickly to the appeal made by the students of Udalguri College, Thaneswar Malakar, DC of Udalguri district in a press release observed that the frequent bandh calls given by various organisations have damaged the developmental process in the district and the students have faced the worst of these bandhs. �The frequent bandh calls have affected the students community to a great extent as a result of which it will be impossible to complete the syllabus and many of the poor students are not in a position to take up private tuitions. In order to free the students from such bandhs, a number of students organisations have submitted memorandum to the DC�, the press release added.
The Deputy Commissioner�s press communique also appealed to all the concerned organisations to refrain from all such bandhs and even if the circumstances compel them to call bandhs, they are requested to exempt schools and colleges from it.
