“We will conduct classes at English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) from Monday,” vice-chancellor Prof Sunaina Singh says, adding that that agitating students can continue their protest, but in a peaceful manner.

“We have no issue with the protests, but we can’t let other students suffer. We have been receiving many representations from students who want classes to be held, as the second semester is coming to an end,” Singh said while speaking to Express. The varsity, which has been shut down since last Monday due to protests in view of the suicide of a Kashmiri research scholar, Mudassir Kamran, has not conducted a single class since.

“We will have to see the situation on Monday,” she firmly answered when asked what action she will take if the protesting students do not allow classes to be held.

EFLU authorities informed that they received as many as 1,000 petitions over the last week, asking for classes to be conducted again.

‘Bandh on Monday’

“Our protest will continue on Monday, and we will enforce a bandh that day as well. In fact, we are going to block the functioning of the entire administration, as our protest will be held in VC’s and Registrar’s office,” said N Satish, a protesting student. He and the others continued to blame proctor Prof Vijra for Kamran’s suicide, and demanded action against him. The agitating students in the campus held a meeting in the EFLU campus Saturday evening to discuss the plan of action for Monday.
