SKM’s student wing visits Vinayaka Mission Univ’s Nursing college

GANGTOK, 17 Feb: Sikkim Krantikari Vidyarthi Morcha [SKVM], a frontal organisation of Sikkim Krantikari Morcha party today visited and met with the faculty members and students of Vinayaka Mission University’s college of nursing at Chandmari here to enquire about the problems faced by them [read NOW! issue dated 17 Feb 2014].
An SKVM release informs that it was brought to its notice that teachers’ salaries were not paid in time therefore forcing the teachers to call a pen-down strike which was later called off.
SKVM was represented by Dilip Rai (vice president), Karma Tashi Bhutia (chief convenor) Bhanu Pratap Rasaily (general secretary), Minjo Lama (secretary), Dr. Mechung Bhutia (chief co-ordinator).
SKVM has said that the University has not got recognition from the Indian Nursing Council for the academic session 2013-14 and has demanded that the University initiate action regarding this at the earliest.
SKVM has also demanded the setting up of Sikkim Nursing Council by the state government to address the grievances of the nursing students within the state and outside the state; the state government should appoint at least two members out of the five members in the board of directors in the University for the well being of local employees and the students; the University should come up with service regulation in order to ensure the regularisation/ job security of the local employees who have been serving the university for a considerable period of time.
