TU Journalism exams put off due to strike

Kathmandu, May 16:

The Department of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) of the Tribhuvan University today postponed practical exams of BA third year for an indefinite period due to a lockout of the department by masters’ level students. The JMC department of TU is situated at Ratna Rajya Laxmi Campus in Bhrikuti Mandap.

Meanwhile, masters’ level students shouted slogans against the department, college administration and the JMC teachers. A talk team formed by the agitating students under the leadership of Suvash Khatiwada held a brief dialogue with teachers and campus chief. However, the talks failed to find any solution after the students demanded department head’s resignation as a precondition for starting talks.

Campus chief Sunil Panta said he has no authority to hear the problem of the department.
