Unrest broke out at the Pathani Samanta School of Nursing in Nayagarh on Monday as students went on a protest accusing the authorities of the institute of failing to manage the affairs properly which is leading to the loss of their classes.
A group of the students knocked on the doors of the district collector today seeking his intervention in resolving the issue which has been costing them dearly amid the present situation of crisis in the wake of the pandemic.
Irate students have alleged that after the death of the founder of the nursing school, the chairman of the institute dissolved the old management and formed a new board to handle the affairs. However, the new management has failed in properly administrating the school which has led the students unable to attend their classes. This apart, some of them have also alleged that the medical school authorities are not returning their original certificates.
Meanwhile, the IIC of the Town Police has said that an investigation is underway into the allegations.
"The old management stopped the online classes after just two sessions. The new administration which we have not even met has also taken sincere steps to ensure the conduct of our classes. Under such circumstances, we are worried for our future," said a protesting student.
A woman who is a parent of a student enrolled in the nursing school however made some shocking claims against the authorities of the nursing school.
"We rushed to the college after coming to know that the hostel rooms of our wards were found open and their belongings were thrown here and there. The school administration should very much be well aware that under no circumstances, the hostel rooms of any students be opened without their knowledge," she said.
