College teachers observe fast against formation of varsities

THANJAVUR: Members of Joint Action Council for College Teachers, comprising Tamil Nadu Government College Teachers' Association and Association of University Teachers' undertook a fast here on Tuesday urging the Government to stop the move to convert five Government colleges and two aided colleges into unitary universities.
T. Arivudai Nambi, State vice-president of Tamil Nadu Government Teachers' Association, inaugurated the fast.
Mr. Nambi said that conversion of colleges into universities would not help students in any way.
