Post graduate students of DM College of Arts of DM University warned with intense agitation if their classes were not resumed from  June 25, 2019.
The classes were put to halt since June 15 June after the withdrawal of teachers from PG engagement.
Speaking to media persons one student identified as Leishangthem Nonglemba Meetei studying MA 2nd Semester in political science said that the PG students have already lost 5 days as the teachers went on a strike. He added that there hasn’t been any official initiative taken up to address their grievances.
Nonglemba further said that as their Semester exam might started around mid July though the syllabus were not covered till now and the classes were also stopped. He said that the students feared that they could not appear the exam successfully.
Nonglemba further stressed that they approach the Principal to look into the matter on 19 of this month. He added that the principal request the teachers to take the class but the effort was in vain as the teachers took their firm stands regarding their strike. The principal apprised the higher authorities to solve the matter.
Nonglemba further said that they only knew recently that their PG teachers are not yet officially teachers for PG even though they taught since the inception of the University.
Meanwhile today PG students of DM arts went to education minister Th. Radheshyam to appeal to take necessary initiative however education minister was out of station. A letter was also sent to Education minister Th Radheshyam to take necessary initiative by the students.
Questioning the reasons for the non teaching of classes by teachers General Secretary of DM College Teachers Forum K. Indramani said that the teachers who teach post graduate students at DM University were never officially appointed as a recognised teacher for the PG students since the inception of the university. They simply teach the students for the sake of the students only without any benefit.
He added that several memorandum and meetings were done with VC of the varsity H. Dilip to recognise the teachers. He also added that there is no academic council for the university neither the syllabus that they have made were also not known whether authority approves it or not.
He stressed that there isn’t any official teacher for PG students of DM university neither there isn’t any recruitment process for it.
He concluded that they stopped the teaching process of PG students as it greatly affects the undergraduate students of DM College.
