Hyderabad: Vice-chancellor Dr Aslam Parvez of the Maulana Azad National University (Manuu) has agreed in principle during a meeting with student leaders to promote all the students who were detained due to shortage of attendance. Earlier, the university had decided to detain 87 students.

Manuu students union president Shaik Umer Farooq Quadri said many students had complained that they were not given relaxation on medical grounds and for taking part in extracurricular activities. “Our union brought this issue to the notice of authorities several times, but these efforts were in vain,” he said. The vice-chancellor will present the matter before the university’s academic council for its perusal. As per Manuu rules, students need to maintain at least 75 per cent attendance to appear in the semester examinations. There are norms to accord relaxation for lack of attendance.

 

The union had threatened to go on a hunger strike with all students boycotting classes from Jan, 20 if the matter was not resolved before Jan. 17. The union asked the university to allow students who had above 50 per cent attendance to take the exams.
