RU agri faculty teachers observe work abstention for room allocation
RAJSHAHI UNIVERSITY, Sept 22: Teachers of the Fisheries and Agronomy and Agriculture Extension departments under Agriculture Faculty observed two-hour (10am to 12pm) work abstention today demanding proper room allocation in the newly extended Agriculture Building on Rajshahi University (RU) campus.
But classes-examinations were free from the teachers' movement.
According to the RU Engineering section office, recently few rooms were constructed in the Agriculture building of the university. These rooms have been distributed three months ago among four departments of the agriculture faculty by Dean Prof Shahana Kayes.
These departments are: Crop Science and Technology, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science, Fisheries and Agronomy and Agriculture Extension Department. Since the beginning of the allocation, teachers of Agronomy and Fisheries Departments have been expressing their dissatisfaction.
Then university administration allocated the rooms of south block in first floor and half of east block in second floor for the Crop Science and Technology Department, third floor for Agronomy and Agriculture Extension and Fisheries departments.
Agronomy Department Head Dr Aminul Haque said, "Administration allocated our department only 1922 sft instead of 2000sft. Now we are claiming additional 1500 sft places with previous spaces."
Besides, a large classroom, two teachers room and a store room also been demanded of the university authority.
