HYDERABAD: The week-long protest at Tata Institute of Social Sciences intensified as six students sat on an indefinite hunger strike on Roda Mistry campus in Gachibowli.
Despite repeated demands to reinstate the OBC financial grant and address the high fee structure, the student council said there had been no positive response from the administration.
Pallavi Pratiba, an MA student of rural governance, said, “We had asked the registrar and acting director to meet the protesting students. But he did not make an appearance. We have clearly stated that we will no longer have any discussion. The students will continue their hunger strike till all our demands have been met. We have received too many verbal assurances and no formal notices.”
The students also said the registrar had repeatedly claimed to be too busy to address student concerns. They also notified the administration that the further delay would see more students join the hunger strike....
