TN Govt orders re-opening of professional colleges Feb 9


 The Tamil Nadu Government today ordered the re-opening of all professional colleges, closed in the wake of students’ unrest on the Sri Lankan Tamils’ issue, on February 9.
Orders to this effect were issued by State Chief Secretary K S Sripathy, an official release said.
Mr Sripathy announced all medical, veterinary, engineering and agricultural colleges in the State, which were ordered closed, would re-open on February 9.
”All professional institutions in the State will function from February nine,” Mr Sripathy added.
The government had on January 31 ordered indefinite closure of all government and private colleges in Tamil Nadu in the wake of escalating students’ unrest over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
The dates for reopening of other educational institutions, which too were closed indefinitely following a government order, would be announced later, he said.
The order, directing closure of all private and government colleges and hostels, was issued by Mr Sripathy on January 31.
The closure order was issued following heightened protests by students demanding immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka to prevent killing of innocent Tamils there.
Students of various colleges had boycotted classes and hit the streets. The protests escalated after the self-immolation of a youth, Muthukumar (26), in the city on January 29 demanding ceasefire and cessation of hostilities in the Island Nation.
