Students of the Film and Television Institute of India have decided to end their 139 day long hunger strike. They had been demanding the removal of recently appointed chairman Gajendra Chauhan and four others.

The students have decided to start attending classes, but protests against Chauhan and the other four other appointees--Narendra Pathak, Anagha Ghaisas, Pranjal Saikia and Shailesh Gupta--will continue.

"The success of our agitation lies in the fact that we took our concerns to common citizens. Filmmakers, artists and others should now take our battle ahead. They should take our genuine concerns forward," a representative of the protesting students said at a press conference in Pune.

The strike which started on 12 June 2015, as the students felt that the new appointees were not qualified enough for the positions.
