Govt to bring in new amendments to control student unions
Kochi: Getting tough on political activities by student unions, Kerala government on Friday informed the High Court that it proposes to bring in new amendments to control activities of student unions inside the campus.
Putting up flex sign boards and defacement of walls would be prohibited in the campus. If classes are disrupted due to strikes, college authorities could seek police assistance and campus and classrooms would be under CCTV surveillance.
The government stated this in response to a contempt petition by a student of Ernakulam Law college, Prakashan, who contended that it had not acted on his previous submission that classes are disrupted due to frequent strikes.
The government said 90 per cent of classrooms would be under CCTV surveillance and 90 per cent attendance will be insisted for every semester. If the college sustains any loss during demonstrations, the organisers concerned will have to compensate, it was stated.
Disciplinary action against the students will be decided by staff council, it said.
