TU campuses shutdown for second consecutive day
Tribhuvan University and its 60 constituent campuses and four research centers have been shutdown for second consecutive day on Friday due to the strike called by Tribhuvan University Teachers’ Association.
The Association announced shutdown in TU and its constituent campuses for two days- Thursday and Friday accusing the government of neglecting its demands.
The Association enforced strike on Friday as well after the talks between the government and Association ended inconclusively Thursday evening.
Finance Minister Barshaman Pun, finance secretary Krishna Hari Baskota, education secretary Kishor Thapa and University Grant Commission chairman Ganesh Man Gurung were present in the negotiations from the government side.
Association secretary Prem Raj Khaniya said they continued the protest after government did not show any sign of fulfilling their demands.
The Association has put forth 22-point demands including pay hike, uniform allowances and permanent status to all the temporary TU teachers, among other. nepalnews.com
