In a press conference organised by the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union(JNUSU), its president Aishe Ghosh claimed that the registrar of the university has refused to meet the team appointed by the HRD for mediating between the agitating students and the administration.

Stating that their demands will continue as long as their demands are not met, Ghosh said, “Look at the high-handedness of the JNU administrators. When they can refuse to talk to the government authorities, how do you expect them to listen to the students.”

The JNUSU president also claimed that female students were groped and the police were cruel towards the students. She added that their bus was not stopped even when she wanted medical help for a fellow student.

One of the JNUSU members then asserted that the police had been atrocious against the protesting JNU students yesterday while proudly showing the scratches on his elbows after he broke the police barricade yesterday. “After I broke the police barricade, the police officials picked me up and threw me over the barricades after which I got these injuries,” he said.

Besides, the JNUSU also put forth a demand that no administrative or legal action be initiated against the students protesting against the hostel fees hike. Ghosh said that he had a meeting with the Joint Secretary of the Human Resource Development Ministry, GC Hosur, and requested him to ensure no administrative action against students.  Ghosh said, “Students are being threatened with notices on their emails for the protests. However, these protests are for a just cause and no student will pay a single rupee as a fine.”

It is notable here that the Delhi police have registered several FIRs against students over damage to public property and rioting.

However, Ghosh and other JNUSU members addressing the press conference reportedly ignored questions about the Ambulances being stuck due to the protest march, traffic congestion on the arterial roads of Delhi and inconvenience caused to the people commuting on the road. Republic TV has claimed that the JNUSU avoided answering questions asked by their crew and their crew were heckled by the students gathered there.

The protests that have been going on for about 3 weeks but yesterday it spiralled out of the University onto the roads of Delhi after the JNUSU called for a protest-march from college to Parliament to demand the rollback of the increased fees, along with multiple other restrictions imposed. A few days back, a soon-to-be inaugurated Swami Vivekananda’s bust in the campus was vandalised by the JNU hoodlums opposing the new fees hike and other restrictions.
