‘Azadi’ slogans make a comeback as JNU protestors march towards parliament

Some protestors are detained by the Delhi Police. The entry and exit to Udyog Bhawan, Patel Chowk and Central Secretariat metro stations have been closed in view of the JNU students' protests.

The perpetual protest dawdlers of the Jawaharlal Nehru University today launched a march towards the Indian parliament in opposition to JNU administration’s proposed fees hike and other proposals. Thousands of students hit the streets demanding a complete rollback of the fees hike amid massive police deployment.

Prohibitory orders issued under Section 144 in and around the university were imposed as the march crossed three layers of police barricading, a kilometre away from the JNU Gate. The students who were holding priests for more than 3 weeks in the university campus over the fees hike and other restrictions organised a protest march carrying placards and chanting slogans, seeking to get the attention of the HRD about their demand. The HRD ministry had instituted a three-member panel to hold a dialogue with the protesting students.

Hundreds of students were stopped near Safdarjung tomb square following which the Delhi police allegedly rained lathis against the protestors. The Delhi Police PRO asserted that will inquire into the allegations of lathi-charge made by the JNU students.

Groups of students protested near the Safdarjung Tomb, raising ‘azadi’ slogans.

Some protestors are detained by the Delhi Police. The entry and exit to Udyog Bhawan, Patel Chowk and Central Secretariat metro stations have been closed in view of the JNU students’ protests. The trains are not stopping at Udyog Bhawan, Lok Kalyan Marg and Patel Chowk.

The students have demanded that the detainees which included JNUSU President be released by the police. They have also demanded the MHRD to declare the withdrawal of both the draft Hostel manual and the Executive Council decisions about its adoption. Their other demands include JNUSU, which is the elected representatives of the students, and the JNUTA must be treated as stakeholders.

Recently, some ‘activists’ of JNU had vandalised a soon-to-be inaugurated statue of Swami Vivekananda on campus while protesting about the new fees structure and added restrictions.
