However, the controversial students union, mainly comprised of ultra-wing elements, claimed that the JNUSU office comes under their purview and that “JNU has always been open for people in need. We had also provided shelter to the 1984 riot victims.”

The JNUSU in a post claimed that as part of their drive to ‘uphold social harmony’, they had given a call for volunteers. It had asserted while there are many rescue teams working in the city, ‘we would like to inform that our campus/JNUSU office is open to all people who need shelter.’ Their posters had the names and numbers of four JNUSU central panel members.
