BENGALURU: Upset with the recent series of protests and rallies staged by the students and student organisations in the state against Amnesty International, the Department of Higher Education has issued directions to all the college principals asking them not to allow students to take part in such events.
In an official circular issued, the department directed the principals to take prior measures to avoid any kind of protests, rallies and illegal activities at the college campuses. The copy of the circular has been sent to all the government degree aided and unaided colleges and also to engineering colleges in the state.
“While delivering lectures at the class rooms, faculties must highlight that the students must be away from any kind of protests or rallies at the campuses. The students should be taught that instead of involving in such activities, students must concentrate on bringing a positive name to the college,” reads the circular.
The circular even targets teaching community and insists them not to involve themselves in any kind of protest at the campus .
