Parshvanath College of Engineering, that was mirred in controversy last week owing to mismanagement, non-payment of salary and sexual harassment, is expected to start in a couple of days.
On Tuesday, the management along with Rajan Raje, head of teaching and non-teaching staff union of the college, and other teachers met the minister of higher education for Maharashtra, Rajesh Tope.
The teaching and the non-teaching staff members alleged that the minister has ordered the dissolution of the college management along with the trustee.
Raje said, “Minister has asked the director, technical education Dr SK Mahajan to zero in on some management or alternative management to take care of the college in the meanwhile. We are expecting to start the college in next two to three days.”
Since last Thursday, though the students and teachers reported to college, the management kept the college shut. Teachers from the college, on condition of anonymity, said, “Studies have been affected due to the strike and protest. The exams of the students are scheduled in May and their practical starts in April. But, we can complete the syllabus in two months.”
Tejchand Shah, trustee of the college, said, “The non-teaching staff had put forth unreasonable demands like hike in their salary along with the teachers. They also staged a protest and made students party to it. I have been constantly trying to get in touch with them but they are not responding. The allegations of sexual harassment on the vice-principal are false. I have received no such complaints.”
The minister of higher education remained unavailable for comment.
