Agitation paralyses Agro University

Ratnanagar (Chitwan), Sept 12: The Agriculture and Forestry Science University based in Rampur of Chitwan has been in sorry state due to strike for a couple of months. Regular operation of classes here has been completely halted after the university teachers and staffs have enforced strike objecting to the appointment of teachers and employees. The regular operation of the university came to a halt when the disgruntled side padlocked the Dean Office and initiated indefinite sit-in citing dissatisfaction over the ignorance to the due process in appointments.

University Registrar Surya Kanta Ghimire said the teaching and learning has been disrupted due to agitation by a section of university teachers. He is hopeful of outlet to the problem as dialogue is on with dissenting side. Nepal National University Teachers Organization and employees had launched agitation alleging the university administration of appointing teachers and employees against the statute of the university, said Organization’s Member Ananta Subedi.
