Kathmandu, July 26:

Teachers and students of the Institute of Engineering, Pulchowk Campus, appealed to the student organisations to lift lock out of the central examination committee so that students could take exams scheduled for July 30-31. They said the lock out will infringe 4,000 students’ right to education, while speaking at an interaction organised today. Bharat Pahari, an official at the Nepal Engineering Association, said the student bodies should not play with the future of other students in the name of movement. “The differences can be sorted out through talks.” Rajiv Jha, a member of AES, said IoE should act responsibly and the student bodies should withdraw their protest programmes at the earliest. Pulchowk campus students have locked out dean office and the Institute of Engineering admission committee since July 19 for providing affiliation to the Kathford International College of Engineering and Management without fulfilling criterion.
