Trinamool Chhatra Parishad (TMCP), State President Trinankur Bhattacharya told media, “A section of students have taken part in the demonstrations, but TMCP is not involved.” “In many higher educational institutions, offline classes could not be held for a greater part of 2020-21. In some places, the percentage of offline classes was 20 per cent, and in some, 30 per cent. We had left it for the respective heads of institutions to take individual decisions considering all factors,” Bhattacharya said when asked about the stand of TMCP on the issue.

CU Vice-Chancellor Sonali Chakrabarty Banerjee said in a statement on Friday that chairpersons of the undergraduate boards of studies and members of the PG faculty councils separately recommended in favour of offline tests at the undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) levels, but a meeting will be held with Principals of the affiliated colleges on May 27, for their views on the mode of examinations.
