Puducherry, Apr 26: The future of 51 students of the B P K College of Designs, started in Mahe Region of the Union Territory in 2006 as an annexe of the Bharathiyar Palkalai Koodam, seems to be bleak as they were not taught anything in the last two years.
A group of students, accompanied by the Puducherry State Government Employees Federation Leader Seshachalam told newspersons that despite several agitations by the students, the administration had failed to take any action.
They said the 51 students were admitted to the four-year designing and five-year Fine Arts courses with an annual fee of Rs 50,000 each.
Though, as per the norms of the University Grants Commission, a Deemed University could not give affiliation to any college, the B P K College of Designs was affiliated to the Maharashtra Tilak Deemed University and all the seven teachers of the college were from Puducherry Region and had obtained their diploma certificates from the Tilak Deemed University in a fraudent way, they alleged.
Two of them were the daughter and son-in-law of the then Member Secretary Kannan, they charged.
They also demanded an inquiry into the functioning of the college.
Alleging widespread irregularities, they demanded a full-fledged inquiry into the institutions' functioning,including Bhathiyar Palkalaikoodam, to fix the responsibility for the irregularities and to hand over proper punishment.
