A protest is generally staged to protect some rights that would be waived unless a negative opinion is expressly voiced. Protesting is a way to complain in some public way about anything or anyone. Talking about the protests that happened in the city in a way to get justice did not get any worthy result despite of agitations and rallies.
Massive protest of year 2016 that ended with non-satisfying results
Atharva Gupta, a 7th standard student of DAV Public School, Pakhowal road, who fell off from the school building after brutally beaten by the school teachers and got multiple injuries and was admitted at DMCH (Dayanand Medical College and Hospital) for around one and a half month didn’t get justice till date despite of massive protest by his family members, school students and many more political leaders. The hospital authorities claimed that it will take at least one and a half year for the recovery of the child due to hip fracture and non working condition of his legs. Atharva was the captain of cricket team of his school (DAV Public school, Pakhowal) and was a brilliant student in studies, as he always secured above 90% marks in finals. But the incident forced him to leave his studies and cricket as well and another one and a half year is like an interruption for his bright future.
Importantly, the point is that despite massive protest and the injury report of the child, nothing happened in his favour.
Massive protest of year 2017 Few days ago, a student (hostler) of Guru Nanak Girls College, Model Town attempted suicide. The reason behind that was that she got stuck off letter from the college authorities due to which under huge depression she took that step. Not only this, when the students thronged on the roads to protest against the college authorities, they revealed many of the complaints against the college authorities.
Around thousands of students gathered outside the college and protested for several days along with raising number of slogans against the college authorities. Students even met Deputy Commissioner Ravi Bhagat regarding the matter and also with Police Commissioner Jatinder Singh Aulakh. The college authorities were charging double charges from the students and also fined around Rs. 5000/- from the students who got stuck off letters. The college authorities also suspended 22 students and vacated the hostel premises for protesting against college.
After weeklong holidays at Guru Nanak Girls College, Model Town, the college reopened for the students on March 11. Regarding the matter, Principal Dr. Charanjit Kaur Mahal explained that the students cannot protest within a distance of 100 meters from any point of the premises of the Guru Nanak Girls College, as per Court Order dated March 10.
Presently, the students are attending classes in the college disappointedly, as no action has been taken in the favour of the students.
