Students and professors of the G B Pant Government Engineering College here today went on an indefinite hunger strike demanding a new campus for the institute from the Delhi government.
They alleged that though Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had met students and teachers, and promised a new campus during their protest in April last year, the matter was still pending with the government.
The campus is proposed to be set up in 23 acres land, the protesters said.
"Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal did not act on the promise of giving us a new campus, but he did send a new officiating principal to handle the protest in the college. The new principal has threatened students and faculty against protesting," Joshil K Abraham, a professor of the college, alleged.
