BENGALURU: The ongoing evaluation work at Bangalore University is stumbling from hurdle to another. The latest one is that faculties have decided to boycott evaluation work.

The Federation of University College Teachers’ Association in Karnataka (FUCTAK) has decided to boycott the ongoing evaluation work of undergraduate exams of the first and third semester. The federation has announced that its members are boycotting evaluations from Wednesday.

President of FUCTAK

The federation also said that they do not intend to trouble students. “Our protest is not to cause trouble to students. We will complete our classes as per the schedule,” Prakash said.

The evaluation work has already been hit by a shortage of evaluators. Now, the boycott announcement by the federation will delay the evaluation process even more. “If we don’t raise our voice now, the government will continue neglecting us. So, we have decided to protest now,” said Dr R Ramachandrappa, General Secretary of the federation.

“We have already informed the government and officials concerned about the protest,” Ramachandrappa said. This is an indefinite protest, the federation said.

Prof K N Ningegowda, registrar evaluation of BU said, “This is not the time for teachers to call for strikes.  If they have any issues they should fight with the government and not with the students’ future. BU will initiate action if they boycott evaluation.”
