Members of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) and interns from the BDS department sat on a hunger strike in front of the Panjab University V-C’s office on Monday after a strike organised in the morning.
The interns demanded that the rule of NOC be abolished and students clearing re-evaluation be compensated in terms of stipend as well as attendance. Also it was demanded that mentors should only include MDS faculty, dental chairs be repaired and material be provided so that patients do not suffer as fee for the equipment and chairs has already been given.
Other demands were regarding biometric attendance system, supplementary exam fee being taken per subject, duty leave being granted for all conferences, bus service being provided for going to GMCH, more transparency in checking during exams, labs being open during lunch to allow interns to work and a convocation ceremony.
