Re­cruit­ment drive brings stench to PAU grounds

HT Ludhiana Live - - Front Page -

Mean­while, the PAU stu­dents, who were pained to see the can­di­dates mis­us­ing the in­fra­struc­ture, held the univer­sity au­thor­i­ties and the po­lice ad­min­is­tra­tion re­spon­si­ble for the "neg­li­gence".

San­deep, a sportsper­son from PAU, said: "The univer­sity is al­ready reeling un­der fi­nan­cial crunch and there are no funds for the up­keep of the ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­ture. The univer­sity has to bear with the un­avoid­able nui­sance of land­ing and tak­ing off of VIP he­li­copters. Now, the grounds be­ing used poorly for other pur­poses is only adding to the woes."

Fit­ness tests for the re­cruit­ment of 382 con­sta­bles in the city started here on Mon­day and will con­tinue till De­cem­ber 10. San­deep said: "If the po­lice con­tinue to ig­nore the san­i­ta­tion is­sue, the PAU au­thor­i­ties will have an­other task at their hands - to steer clear the ath­letic ground of the stench."

DCP Ashish Chaud­hary said: "There are toi­lets in the gym­na­sium, ad­join­ing the ground. But, we can not do any­thing if the can­di­dates do not have civic sense."
