KOCHI: The students’ union of Government Law College, Ernakulam urged the district administration to take steps to carry out maintenance and renovation of the college building.

Union office-bearers in the memorandum stated that the PWD has not bother to carry out maintenance of the college building despite repeated requests. Recently, the ceiling of room number 124 fell down. Because of this no classes are being held in this room. Though a request had been forwarded to the PWD, the officials paid no attention.

They pointed out that the situation of the other buildings of the college is also not good. “Owing to lack of maintenance, the heritage building of the college is on the verge of ruin. Apathy on the part of government towards the heritage building shows the extent of its absolute impassivity towards culture, heritage and historical excellence,” the memorandum said.

Union leaders also pointed out that not a single meeting of the College Development Committee has been convened after the present students union took charge in January 2015.“Therefore students are not getting a chance to raise their demands and complaints,” the letter said.
