CHANDIGARH: Indian National Students Organisation (INSO) has decided to constitute a Anti-Ragging cell to curb the menace of ragging of students.
INSO PU campus chairman, Sukhdev Kundu said that INSO activists would ensure that no ragging or disrespect is done to any new student. The menace of ragging raises its ugly head every year as soon as the new session begins in educational institutes and it is the duty of every student that no such things should happen this year in the PU and its colleges, he added.
INSO leader said that INSO would also educate the students about the ill-effects of ragging and its ramification. He said that only last year a student of Government Medical College, Sector 32 had allegedly committed suicide. In view of this, INSO has decided to launch a special campaign against the ragging as it was against the principles of humanity and equality. INSO, which always works for the welfare of students community, has decided to curb this menace with the help of the students itself, he further added.
INSO has started an Anti-Ragging helpline round the clock in all educational institutes of Chandigarh so that fresher students can take help of their seniors when they encounter any such situation. INSO activists would sort out any such matter. This helpline will work 24 hours and the numbers issued by INSO Chandigarh Unit are 9815727470, 9814300049, 9876010307, 9915230813, 9876092345, 9872960887.
Kundu said that students can call these help line numbers at any time and students would never find themselves alone at any point of time during their entire session.
