Kathmandu, November 14:

The Nepal University Teachers’ Association (NUTA) today announced it would stage “pen-down” strikes in all campuses and research centres under the various universities on November 16 in its bid to express solidarity with the Nepal Bar Association’s boycott of

court proceedings across the country. NUTA announced the pen-down strike against the Supreme Court’s decision not to issue a stay on the government’s controversial media ordinance and action against the Kantipur FM.
