The Lucknow University Associated Colleges Teachers' Association (LUACTA) on Monday threatened to boycott the examinations, which begin on March 4, if the state government fails to approve its various demands, such as payment of arrears and implementation of UGC regulations, LUACTA president Manoj Pandey said at a press conference. Also, LUACTA will join the gherao of Vidhan Sabha on February 27, called by Federation of UP Universities and Colleges Teachers' Association (FUPUCTA), Pandey said.
"We have been protesting for some years but with no results. Hence, we have been forced to take this drastic step," Pandey said, holding the state government "wholly responsible" for it. Pandey said that the non-implementation of UGC regulations for the past three years has affected the selection process, promotion, etc at the universities and colleges of the state.
