Kathmandu, March 19. Two student unions — All Nepal National Free Students Union and the All Nepal National Independent Students Union (Revolutionary) affiliated to the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) today padlocked the office of Tribhuvan University (TU) vice chancellor and of the IOM (Institute of Medicine).
Students are enraged by the ‘haphazard’ collection of fees by several medical colleges.
A students’ squad jointly headed by ANNISU(R) president Ranjit Tamang and ANNFSU secretary RC Lamichhane flocked the Kirtipur-based TU vice chancellor’s office and IOM dean’s office in Maharajgunj and padlocked them.
They have accused the TU of taking no response at all to the acts of the Gandaki Medical College and KIST Medical College which have in one hand overcharged the students and on other exert pressure to withdraw the case, creating psychological terror among those who decided to seek legal remedy for being deprived of filling up the exam firms.
The protest is for compelling the authorities concerned to address the issue soon, ANNFSU secretary Lamichhane said. RSS
