Protests by JNUTA, JNUSU unlawful: varsity registrar

New Delhi: Terming the protests by teachers and students bodies "unlawful", the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration on Wednesday said that a few people had caused huge administrative and financial loss to the university.
"Due to the protests, the processing of bills and scholarship applications were hit, especially during the final two weeks of the current fiscal," JNU Registrar Pramod Kumar said in a statement.
He said university work has suffered unimaginable disruptions because of this "totally uncalled for and unlawful activity carried out by a handful of students and teachers."
"One clear and immediate casualty has been processing of various bills and scholarship applications, especially during the final two weeks of the current financial year (2017-2018)," the statement added.
Kumar appealed to the JNU Students' Union (JNUSU) and the JNU Teachers' Association (JNUTA) to refrain from holding protests, adding that "the unlawful lock-out of several buildings and offices has caused enormous inconvenience and the academic loss caused by unrelenting strikes is difficult to reckon at this stage."
"The administration has discussed these issues with the deans and chairpersons, and also invited all interested faculty members for a dialogue to resolve the issue at the earliest," he said.
