Teachers have joined students protesting Rampur-based Agriculture and Forestry University’s (AFU) decision to affiliate seven private campuses.
Agitating university teachers on Monday demanded withdrawal of affiliations granted to seven private colleges in Nepal at a press conference. Earlier, only students protested against the Agri Univ’s decision. Now teachers back them.
Teacher Ananta Prakash Subedi says faculty members are determined to continue agitating until the university’s scraps the affiliations granted to seven colleges.
Student leader Nagendra Dahal reaffirms this belligerent stance. Scores of students are holding protests since July 10.
The Agri Univ recently granted affiliations to seven private campuses in Jhapa, Itahari in Sunsari, Lalitpur, Nawalparasi, Banke and Surkhet for running the Bachelor’s degree classes in agriculture.
