KOCHI: The screening of ‘India: The Modi Question’, the controversial BBC documentary on 2002 Gujarat riots, organised by the students of Government Law College, Ernakulam on Wednesday was allegedly hindered by the college authorities by interrupting the power supply on the campus. Students’ Federation of India (SFI) and Kerala Students Union (KSU) activists alleged that the main fuse of the electricity network on the campus was unplugged at the direction of the college principal.However, the college authorities defended their action by stating that an argument between the two students’ outfits over using the college’s sound and projection systems forced them to disconnect the power for some time. Eventually, power was restored and both the outfits screened the documentary.KSU state president Aloshious Xavier said that the principal initially objected to using the college’s speakers when the KSU college unit was about to screen the documentary. “She later snapped the power. However, the KSU screened the two parts of the documentary once the power was restored,” he said.The SFI-led college union also alleged that the principal was against the screening. “She said that the documentary could not be screened and later removed the power fuse. However, when the students started protesting, the supply was restored,” said Favas PP, college union chairman.Meanwhile, Principal Bindu M Nambiar refuted the allegations. She said that at first SFI opposed when the KSU workers tried to use the college’s speaker. Later, when SFI used the college projector for their screening, KSU opposed it. So, the college authorities decided that none of them could use college properties for the screening and snapped the power. It was later restored after both outfits came to an agreement, she said.

The directive which will be applicable to schools of all education boards will remain effective till the time new directive is issued to the schools. The schools have been asked to make necessary arrangements to cover the remaining course curriculum due to the change in the timings. It is worth mentioning here that Gujarat government had already allowed schools in the state to change timings after an girl student of Class 8 died after suffering from cardiac arrest due to severe cold in a Rajkot school. Most primary schools have morning shifts that begin from 7.15am or 7.30am the students need to leave their homes early in morning when its is very cold. The Vadodara Parents Association welcomed the decision taken by the district administration. In wake of the severe cold conditions in the state, the association too had made representation before the authorities to bring changes in school timings.
