Mangalore, Feb 17: The inmates of Mangalore University Boys Hostel boycotted the mess, protesting against the substandard quality of food, hike in establishment cost and mess fee etc on Thursday February 16.

The boys demanded the varsity to intervene and sort out the problems.

Though the problems had been persisting for long, the inmates had not blown out the issue.  However, the issue triggered off with the warden talking arrogantly with a particular student who complained about the irregularities.

Students have been alleging that the hostel management has been clandestinely procuring groceries without proper accounts.

The students have regularly complained that groceries have been procured from outside shops even when it is available in the cooperative stores of the university.  “There is no transparency whatsoever in the accounts,” said one of the inmates. 

The students also complained that establishment charges have been increased to Rs 250 from the existing Rs 200.  The students also questioned the inactive nature of the Hostel Advisory Committee.

However, varsity vice-chancellor, Kaveriappa discussed the problems with the students and certain measures were taken.  At first it was decided to form a purchasing committee involving students so as to maintain transparency in the transactions.  The establishment fee too was reduced by Rs 25.
