United Students Forum on hunger strike in Darjeeling Govt College, demand rise in number of seats

Darjeeling, 22nd September: Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many students are deciding to stay in their hometown and considering to apply for admission in the native colleges. However, colleges are failing to accommodate the rising number of students due to a severe shortage of seats.

In this context, the students who did not make it to the first-year undergraduate enrolment in Darjeeling Government College have initiated a 12-hour hunger strike in front of the college from today. Under the banner of United Student Forum and the leadership of chairperson Deepika Mukhia, the students are demanding a rise in the number of seats.

The protestors claim they are not getting admission in various colleges in Darjeeling despite attaining high-grade in their Class XII board examination. They added that a 12-hour hunger strike has been initiated by the United Student Forum considering the future of the students.

The students have demanded North Bengal University authorities to increase the number of seats in the colleges in Darjeeling. The United Student Forum has further warned to continue their 12-hour hunger strike from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day until their demands are met.
