All the members discussed about this issue during a meeting. Abhishek Chamankar headed the discussion and asked everyone to think seriously about the chaos in management of the hostel and inattention of ladies who cook food in hostel.
The committee has decided in a meeting to visit hostel and investigate about the management. A decision to meet District Officer to pull his attention towards this issue was also taken in a meeting. It is necessary to have control over the hostel. The members of committee also expressed their disappointment as government’s facilities are not reaching to the students who stay in hostel.
