National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER) students continue their strike on second day against the college administration demanding better infrastructure.
Around 100 students from six branches of the institute wrote to the college administration highlighting their demands like a full-time project director for the institute and proper lab facilities for the them. After getting no response to their two letters from the administration, they went on strike during work hours, a student said.
“Our demands include the appointment of a full-time project director, who hails from the Pharmacy background rather than the temporary director we have now. We also need proper lab facilities for our better professional life ahead,” a second year PG student of the institute said.
