Ratnanagar (Chitwan), Jan 27,2015: Teaching at the Birendra Multiple Campus here has been badly disrupted after the conflict between Nepal Student Union (NSU) and the campus management. Owing to the tension, six teachers including the campus chief have resigned en masse.

Teachers as Govinda Sapkota, Dharma Bahadur Thapa, Khagraj Acharya, Arjun Prasad Sapkota and Dayanidhi Ghimire and Chief Dr Keshav Bhakta Sapkota resigned with the reason they could not tolerate with the encroachment upon the land the campus owns.
