The SPA Alumni is glad to share that the strike called by the students of SPA has been amicably called off.The immediate concerns of the students have been mutually resolved. The SPA Alumni worked effectively as a mediator and interlocutor between the students and the administration, both of whom showed great patience and maturity in ensuring that the semester is not wasted and classes may resume, while in no way placing the students in any harm.
The SPA Alumni remains concerned about the issues concerning the infrastructure and facilities at SPA. The SPA Alumni continues in its endeavour to facilitate communication and resolution on the long term deliverables that remain on the table and will be resolved as per the mutually agreed schedule, with due inputs from the students and the administration.
We would like to place on record here that the SPA Alumni remains a safe haven for students to approach without any fear of retribution, for any future or immediate concerns.
We would like to place on record and convey our deep appreciation of the role played by Shri Vijay Garg in resolving the issues. He was there with Anuj Srivastava throughout the entire day till the agreement was signed just before midnight. We thank the Director Dr Sridharan, the Deans Prof Suneja, Prof Mahavir, Shri VK Paul and Prof Manoj Mathur and the entire faculty for their efforts. We also thank the students council and all the students for their active participation to resolve the oustanding issues and work towards a solution.We would also like to thank Punit Sethi, Kavas Kapadia Nikhil Segel Ashish Gupta, Ameet Babbar, Archana Khanna Gupta and Deepika Saxena for their active involvement in concerted efforts to reach an amicable solution.
