Kathmandu University administration has asked Nepal University
Teachers Association (NUTA) to form a 3 member committee to talk and
solve all the issues raised by KUPA.
As per the request of Kathmandu University (KU), Nepal University Teachers Association (NUTA)— an umbrella organisation of professors’ associations from different universities — has formed a three-member committee to hold talks with the KU administration, regarding fulfilling the demands of Kathmandu University Professors’ Association (KUPA).
NUTA has already forwarded following names:
1. Mr Rameswar Upadhyaya - President, NUTA
2. Mr. Chiranjivi Sharma - Professor, Mahendra Ratna Campus, TU
3. Dr. Bibhuti Ranjan Jha - President, KUPA
According to Dr Bibhuti Ranjan Jha, even though KU administration has bypassed us, KUPA members are still happy to go into the process of dialogue as NUTA is an Umbrella organization of all the professors of the country and KUPA is its integral part.
University Professors’ Associations has been staging peaceful protest
since July 25, demanding the termination of the appointment of dean of
Science Faculty, initiation of the process of promotion and permanency
of all who were ‘victimised unlawfully’, scientific salary hike and
institutionalisation of KUPA.
