Students burn effigy of Haryana chief minister in university campus
Rohtak:  An effigy of Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was burnt in the Maharshi Dayanand University campus in Rohtak today by students who were enraged over the government's alleged inaction into the scams that surfaced in the university.

The protesters threatened the government to go to court if stern action was not taken against the university officers for gross financial 'irregularities' in various projects.

Gathering near the Central Library in the new campus of the university, the protesters also shouted slogans against Vice Chancellor (VC) Ramphal Hooda, taking out a procession and then burning the effigy.

Addressing the protesters, INSO leader Pradeep Deswal alleged that inferior material was used in the construction of various buildings in the university campus.

Though several complaints with proofs had been made in this regard to the university authorities and state government, Mr Deswal asserted that no action had so far been taken indicating foul play in the matter.

Similarly, probe was also not made into the Rs 100-crore scam in distance education and valuable land of the university was disposed of to a real estate company by the university authority for fulfilling its vested interest, the leader claimed.

"Being students of the university, it is our moral responsibility to raise our voice against those 'illegal' and 'corrupt' practices being adopted by top officers of the university to 'destroy' its academic atmosphere", said Mr Deswal, adding, "such anti-student policies of the authorities would not be tolerated".
