Around 400 students and 32 teachers took part in today’s protest demanding constitution of a teachers’ council so that academic and administrative work could begin.
On December 22, the college is scheduled to hold an art exhibition. But with the current impasse, it is not clear that the exhibition could be organised. “The exhibition is the only event to showcase our art. If it is cancelled, our career will be affected,” said one of the protesting students. Teachers alleged that the principal did not consult them while taking major decisions.
Chowdhury, meanwhile, declined to comment. “If this stalemate continues for long, I will be forced to take a drastic action,” he said.
