The fresh appeal came even as one of the seven students on hunger strike over the suicide was yesterday shifted to the varsity's health centre after his health deteriorated. His condition was later reported to be stable.
The Hyderabad police, meanwhile, foiled attempts to take out a 'peace' rally towards Tank Bund and took 54 protesting students in preventive custody. They were later let off.
The students, under the banner of Osmania University JAC and University of Hyderabad JAC, assembled near the People's Plaza as per their plan to take out a 'peace' rally towards Ambedkar statue at Tank Bund.
In the appeal put up on the varsity website, Srivastava said the University activities have come to a standstill due to continued blockade of academic and administrative facilities because of the agitation.
This will lead to a delay in the completion of courses affecting the employment and higher education prospects of the students, he said.
"Besides, disbursement of fellowships, scholarships and salaries (especially class IV and contract employees) is getting delayed inordinately", he said in the appeal.
