Stu­dents of Na­tional In­sti­tute of Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Re­search ( NIPER), SAS Na­gar, con­tin­ued their re­sumed strike on the se­cond con­sec­u­tive day on Tues­day as well and as­serted they would con­tinue to protest till their de­mands were ful­filled.

Stu­dents said they were forced to re­sume their protests due to the “fail­ure” of NIPER ad­min­is­tra­tion to ful­fill their de­mands.

They said that the author­i­ties had promised to meet their de­mands within 15 days, but did noth­ing.

Stu­dents claimed that no­body from the union min­istry of chem­i­cals and fer­tilis­ers or NIPER board of gov­er­nors came to meet them.

The de­mands of the stu­dents in­cluded recog­ni­tion of NIPER de­gree, a per­ma­nent direc­tor, place­ments of stu­dents, ap­point­ment of ded­i­cated place­ment of­fi­cers, im­prove­ment of In­ter­net fa­cil­i­ties in hos­tel, more hos­tel fa­cil­i­ties, and ra­tio­nalised stu­dent-fac­ulty ra­tio.

Sig­nif­i­cantly, the NIPER board’s de­ci­sion of ter­mi­nat­ing the ser­vices of a fac­ulty mem­ber, Dr Parik­shit Bansal and Dr Neeraj Ku­mar, had trig­gered protests at the in­sti­tute.
