Members of the NSUI and the ABVP today staged a protest demanding the reopening of the Panjab University campus.

“The campus has been closed for nearly a year now and Covid is no longer an excuse for keeping the university closed further,” said Rahul Kumar, vice-president, NSUI.

The ABVP went on indefinite strike. “The ABVP has demanded the resumption of educational activities and fulfilment of other demands. Despite a lot of sloganeering, Professor Raj Kumar, VC, did not come to meet us,” said a press note by the ABVP.

“Physical classes should be started as soon as possible for final year students, students should be given both online and offline options for examinations and all libraries should be opened on the university campus,” said PU ABVP president Paras Ratan.
