Hyderabad: Hundreds of student leaders of the ABVP joined the protest at the Administrative block with students of the National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management (NITHM) Gachibowli who were protesting for the last five days against the sudden change in the pattern of internal examinations and against the institute director for not fulfilling the demands of the students.
After two hours of shouting slogans, the protestors, along with the ABVP students demanded to meet the director of the institute, who later met students. About 200 students plan to take their TCs if the director of the institute didn’t resign or was removed from his position, the students told this newspaper.
One of the foreign students, on condition of anonymity told this newspaper, “The facilities displayed on the website are nowhere close to what is being offered to us. Our main problem is the spicy food being served in the college mess. Usually international students have their own kitchen where they can cook their own food. But, this is not provided and the fridge given is not working.’’
Mr Chinnam Reddy, Director-National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management (NITHM) said, “I disagree with the statement of the students regarding internal examination and hostel facilities. In the month of January when the third semester started, the faculty had clearly explained to the students about the components of the examination as per JNTUH.’’
