Thousands of students of TU’s constituent and affiliated colleges come to Kathmandu each year for the convocation programme. Sujan Dhakal, who graduated from Eastern Region Campus in Dharan, said he travelled all the way to Kathmandu despite ongoing protests in Tarai so that he can commemorate his achievement.
At the programme, Education Minister Girirajmani Pokhrel said that TU has been plagued by political interference of late and called for such malpractices to end.
