Lockout at varsity ends with agreement
POKHARA: Nepal Student Union’s lockout of Purvanchal University ended on Tuesday following agreement with the union.
Earlier, the student union, on January 7, had padlocked the central offices of the university over a dispute related to the procedures of office bearers of the Free Student Union.
The lockout ended on Tuesday following agreement that a committee would be formed to resolve the dispute. After the agreement, FSU President Sunil Timilsina and Secretary Suraj Pariyar broke their fast-unto-death, which they had started from Monday. “The fast-unto-death ended with the agreement that everything would be done as per the report of the committee to be formed under the coordination of the Dean of the Management Stream Hari Bahadur Khadka,” said FSU president Timilsina.
The committee is expected to submit its report in a week’s time.
