The students of Kathmandu University on Sunday served a 48-hour ultimatum to the varsity administration to resume classes.
The CPN-UML aligned All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU) has been padlocking the Dhulikhel-based University for the past 15 days. The students have warned that they would launch a relay hunger strike if the classes were not resumed promptly.
“They were compelled to serve ultimatum after the varsity administration turned a blind eye to their problems,” said Ranjay Baidhya, a third year engineering student at the varsity.
The ANFSU has been padlocking the varsity since January 22 demanding election of the Student Welfare Council (SWC), which was stalled following a debate among the students unions on December 23.
The ANFSU has been accusing the varsity administration of stalling the election under the direction of Vice Chancellor Dr. Ram Kantha Makaju Shrestha.
