Strike aimed at drawing government attention

Students of the Forest College at Mettupalayam, who have been on a strike since November 20, have clarified that they have not indulged in any violence damaging the college property.The strike is only aimed at drawing the attention of the government to their 25-year-long “genuine demand” and to invite them for talks.In a release, the students said that blocking road at Mettupalayam recently was only to bring their demand for job prospects to the attention of the government.

“There had not been any instigation” and this was the fifth massive protest by the students for the same demand, the release added.A number of political parties had expressed their support to the students understanding the anxiety and uncertainty of career foreseen by the students. The students were not in a position to refuse such moral support and it should not be seen or described as an excuse to give political colour to the agitation, the release added.

Reacting to the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission’s (TNPSC) contention that B.Sc Forestry was just like any other degree course, the students pointed out that B.Sc Forestry was a four-year professional course started specifically with an objective to provide professionally trained manpower to meet the forestry needs.
