Just eight days are left for the election scheduled on June 6 but the students unions are still divided over the status of the students who were enrolled en masse through the illegal channel and many colleges across Nation are still padlocked.

Before the meeting the university officials had made a final request to the chairpersons of all the unions to withdraw their protest and create environment for the polls.
Ganga Bahadur Thapa chief of Student Welfare Department at Tribhuvan University told that, They can't do anything unless all the unions come together . “As most of the colleges have missed the deadline, the polls dates can be postponed.”
