While the impasse between administration and protesting students at the English and Foreign Languages University entered its fourth day Thursday, other students and hostellers have begun to bear the brunt of the stir.
With the administration not being able to function normally, students requiring documents from officials are suffering. On Monday, a student, who needed his transfer certificate to gain admission in Osmania University, had to return dejected as the protests had marred the administrations’ functioning. He needed the certificate to secure admission, and Monday was the last date.
“A day after that, a girl injured her hand while playing football, and was taken to Kamineni Hospital. But she was unable to get the letter from EFLU,” explained Suman (name changed). Not even one EFLU student is ready to speak against the protests.
“We have exams from April and we need classes to be held. It has been almost a week now without classes,” lamented another student, who did not want to be named.
EFLU authorities however, seemed to be unaware of the problems hostellers face. When contacted, registrar M Sudhakar said negotiations are on to end the impasse.
“The bandh will go on even on Friday and we will hold the protest inside the vice-chancellor’s chamber next,” said T Satish, a student.
