KATHMANDU, March 24: Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, Pampha Bhusal has said that Tribhuvan University, which has a rich historical background, is facing many challenges at present.
At the inaugural function of the 4th National Convention of the Central Committee of the Nepal National Employees' Organization, Tribhuvan University, she urged the university stakeholders to conduct a serious review and move toward managing the current challenges faced by the university.
Questioning how there are more teachers than students in some faculty of TU while the educational institutions opened by individuals would be profitable with lines of students to study them, Minister Bhusal urged the authorities concerned to pay more attention to how to solve the problem than to blame it on each other.
She said, “It has been 68 days since the vice chancellor and rector were locked up in their office. So, the authorities concerned should find a solution to the problem without a day's delay." Stating that one problem after another arises at TU, Minister Bhusal stressed the need for managing the challenges as the impact of education lasts for a lifetime.
