Mangaluru: ACSU Stages Protest to Accept Medical Certificate in Colleges

Mangaluru: All College Students Union (ACSU) staged a protest in front of the DC Office demanding to accept the medical certificates from students taking leave due to health problems.

Addressing the protesters, legal adviser of ACSU Dinaker Shetty said that in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, there are 190 colleges and thousands of students pursuing their education. “In every college, more than 15 students are deprived from continuing their education due to lack of attendance. Every year more than 1000 students, due to accidents and other health issues, cannot continue their education because the college authorities do not accept medical certificates from the students.”

He further said that no one can avoid accidents or sickness. “But according to the constitution, students have the right to present medical certificate if they are absent for the classes and come back to the college after some days. Because of denying attendance to students, they will get involved in anti-social activities for which the education officers are the main cause. The education officers should accept medical certificates from the students when they bring the same while they come back to the college,” he said.

The president of ACSU Deekshith Shetty, working president Donald Noronha, Secretary Sachin Shetty, Taluk president Ajay Mada, Sports secretary Dhanush Shetty, Union Secretary Suhas Shetty, State leaders Shifal Raj, Ashwith Kottari, Ramith Kumar, Vinay L J, Lohit Kumar and others were also present.

Later, a memorandum was submitted to the Deputy Commissioner by the students.
