#StudentLivesMatters

In these unprecedented times, when the people are trying to maintain social distancing and avoiding large gatherings,  the administration of Institute of pharmacy, Nirma University decides to force the students to visit the campus for practicals and exams 

The students were not even asked for their opinion and no option for online exam was even considered. On raising the queries, the director failed to respond properly. This has caused a state of havoc and stress among the students. 

Rather than being the guardian of students, the institute has isolated itself from pupils. The students have accused institute of being "UNRESPONSIVE". 

The Institute has not considered the plight of the students who are not the local residents of the city. With no on-campus hostels for UG students and not PGs and hostels outside being open, they have blindly instructed the students to manage on their own accommodation on such a short notice. 

With rising number of cases the risk of Infection has exponentially increased and in such an alarming situation the institute has instructed the students to arrange their own requirements of food and transportation to and from the college. 

The Institute gave written permission to NRI students to go back to their home country and assured them that the sessions and exam will be held online only. But out of nowhere they instructed them to visit the campus and that too in such a short period of time.

The main concern is about the safety of students. If any of the student has developed symptoms of COVID before or during the period of visit then the entire batch of student including their families will be at risk. Also if something unfortunate happens then who will be held accountable. Will the institute assure them that no such incident will happen? 

The entire semester was conducted online even the exams, then why to put the students in danger ?

The Institute must consider online studies as the most safest and only viable option, keeping in mind the physical and mental well-being of their students.
