GUWAHATI, Sept 22 � Students of the National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam, have started an indefinite stir demanding redressal of their �grievances�, and accusing the authorities concerned of doing little to ease the situation.
The university was set up by a State government legislation in 2009. The students are admitted through a common nationwide law admission test.
The agitating students alleged that the annual fee at Rs two lakh was exorbitant and that the University authorities never bothered to provide amenities commensurate with the high fee.
�The authorities don�t provide things as promised. They take a number of fees such as journal fee, moot court fee, campus development fee, internship and placement fee, etc, but no corresponding amenities are provided. We do not have any journal; there is no mooting instructor; students are not allowed to form any bar association; there is no campus development; and there is no placement,� the students said.
The students further said that the University does not have a single Professor and no permanent teacher as well. �Classes are run by guest faculties only,� they added.
The students said that they had moved the authorities concerned several times, but to no avail.
The students today started a hunger strike to push for their demands, while their overall stir entered the fifth day today.
