Almost ten days after the working of Parshvanath College of Engineering in Thane was scrutinised and report was submitted to the University of Mumbai, the college staff is still waiting for action against the management. The college was in controversy owing to alleged mismanagement, non-payment of salaries and sexual harassment by management.
The teaching and non-teaching staff union of the college will now submit a letter to the University of Mumbai and Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) requesting action against management. The union has claimed that if the inaction continues till Wednesday, they will go on an agitation at Azad Maidan.
Rajan Raje, head of the union, said, “Ten days after the verification too, no action has been initiated against the management. We have approached senior social worker Anna Hazare and chief minister Ashok Chavan. Though Chavan has ordered the officials to take action, DTE and Mumbai University are just passing the buck.”
On February 24, the fact-finding committee headed by Dr Krishna Patil visited the college and presented report.
GM Patil, member, management council, said, “The management had several issues. We have submitted the report to the University. We are waiting for their reply.”
Meanwhile, SK Mahajan, director of technical education, Maharashtra, said, “The state government has ordered the University of Mumbai to look into the matter. So we cannot interfere.”
