Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers’ Association (JNUTA)had recently taken part in a daylong hunger strike at the administrative block on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus despite a warning received from the administration.
This strike was based on the demand of the “restoration of academic and institutional functioning of the University”. The Decision to goon a hunger strike was taken due to the attack on the teaching and learning process at the university.
JNUTA secretary Avinash Kumar said, “Threatening teachers for biometric attendance is a violation, in letter and spirit, of the Right to Privacy provided by the judgments of the Supreme Court. We also demand that installation of biometric machines be immediately stopped”.
