Jammu University students call off strike
Posted 05 Apr 2018 03:37 PM

The ongoing strike by students in the University of Jammu was called off on Wednesday after the authorities revoked suspension of five students and discussed demands raised by various student groups.
Scores of students representing various groups under the banner of Jammu University Students Joint Action Committee assembled in front of the Office of Vice Chancellor, JU, and started hunger strike in support of their demands.
Soon after the hunger strike, the Negotiating Team formed by the university sent proposal to the representatives of the striking students for talks.
A committee formed by the university and the student representatives unanimously agreed that the ongoing agitation had taken a shape that was undesirable and had no direction. Both parties agreed that it was in the interest of the entire university community and that the strike should be brought to an end.
The members of the committee and the students’ representatives also agreed that the demands raised by the students with respect to university infrastructure and facilities were legitimate and the same should be provided in the shortest possible time, the spokesman said.
These include 24-hour food and soft beverages kiosk, computer printout facilities, installation of CCTV cameras, improvement in security for grant students, improvement in hostel mess and arrangement for food to be served on holidays, timely conduct of examination, timely declaration of results, regular meetings between students representatives and the administration and wi-fi facility within the university for all registered scholars and students.
On March 22, the university authorities had suspended five students and registered a police complaint against them for allegedly ransacking the Dean Students Welfare (DSW) office during a protest in support of various demands, including wifi connectivity inside hostels and round-the-clock library facility for women students.
