Students protest against ‘dress code’ notice at PU girls hostel

Chandigarh: September 9, 2018: Students of Panjab University, Chandigarh, especially girls, lodged a strong protest against the “dress code notice” put up on the notice board of the Mata Gujri Girls Hostel 1 on PU campus. The notice had cited that girl students should be properly dressed while going to common room, dining hall and hostel functions failing which a fine would be imposed by the warden. This had irked students on the university campus.

On Sunday, SFS submitted a memorandum demanding that the notice be taken down. As part of the protest call, newly-elected PUCSC president Kanupriya met the hostellers following which, the warden removed the notice and addressed grievances mentioned in the memorandum. “Such rules represent a very derogatory mindset of the authorities. Moral policing has no place on Panjab University campus,” said Kanupriya. Former MP Pawan Kumar Bansal has also condemned the notice.
