Syndicate panel likely to meet tomorrow

Chandigarh, August 8

The co-ordination committee formed by Panjab University (PU) Syndicate is likely to meet on Monday to take decision on students' demand for reimbursement of fee for online classes and postponing the last date of submission of fee.

Earlier, the meeting was expected to be held today. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions members from Punjab were unable to come at such a short notice, said sources.

Meanwhile, continuing their protest, student leaders of ABVP burnt an effigy of the PU Vice Chancellor (VC). Interestingly, students are also opposing fee hike for this session, despite the fact that the Syndicate has rejected the proposal of five per cent increase earlier this year.

"The Syndicate has already refused any kind of fee hike earlier this year. Those protesting are either unaware or doing it with some motive. Otherwise, the decision is approved by the Senate and the Syndicate. It's not in the hands of any co-ordination committee," said Navdeep Goyal, chairman, co-ordination committee.

"The matter has been given a political angle ahead of the upcoming Senate elections," the sources added. — TNS
