JNU administration asks teachers to resume classes

The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration on Monday issued an advisory to teachers to resume their classes in the interest of students.

The advisory was issued after two JNU Teachers' Association officer bearers announced a "non cooperation" plan, the varsity said.

"The above call for 'non-cooperation' not only goes against the efforts of the administration for restoration of normalcy in the campus and resumption of academic activities but also reflects the intention of JNUTA to disrupt normal functioning of the university," the varsity said in its advisory.

Thousands of students have already registered for the 2020 Winter Semester and others are in the process of doing their registration, it said.

"All faculty members are thus advised ta resume their classes and other academic activities in the interests of the student community," the advisory said.
