Kaplivastu, 14 Dec 2014: Different student organisations have jointly padlocked all campuses in Kapilvastu district protesting the recent fee hike.
District Secretary of the All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU), Prakash Gautam, said that the student organisations have padlocked seven campuses protesting the fee hike by more than 50 per cent.
Before this, the student organizations had launched different programmes demanding withdrawal of the fee hike without obstructing classes.
Gautam said that they were compelled to padlock the campuses after their demands were not addressed even after different pressure-exerting programmes including padlocking of accounts section and ban on entry of campus chief at his office were launched.
President of Nepal Students Union, Kapilvastu, Rakesh Pandey said that they would padlock the campuses until the fee hike was not withdrawn. He said that the decision of fee hike was taken without coordination and consultation with the student organisations.
Pandey also called all students to support them against the fee hike.
