  • JNU Students Union To Carry Out Protest March To Parliament On Monday

Credit: PTI Jawaharlal Nehru University students try to get past a police barricade during a protest march towards Parliament on Monday.

"The massive police deployment and barricading at the gates of the JNU campus, which on the face of it appears to be only for the goal of preventing the students from taking out their planned march to Parliament", JNUTA said.

JNU students have been staging protests against the administration's decision to hike fees for hostel facilities.

As advised by Delhi Police, trains are not halting at Lok Kalyan Marg and entry/exit gates of the station have also been closed temporarily, the DMRC said in another tweet. One company comprises 70 to 80 personnel.

A senior official said police personnel are accompanying the agitating students during the march to ensure no untoward incident takes place. Subsequently, over 100 students broke through the barricades and tried to march towards New Delhi district area. The Mhrd is fooling students by forming committee. Why didn't the committee suspend fee hike till dialogue is happening? "We are demanding a rollback of the fee hike".

The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, on November 18, appointed a three-member committee to recommend ways to restore normal functioning of JNU.

According to reports, section 144 was imposed near the campus and Parliament complex where the student protesters were going to march towards.

"The vice chancellor isn't meeting us", said Abhimanyu, a doctorate student at JNU who like most preferred not to give a last name for fear of being identified. "The administration officials and the panel should speak to the elected union to solve the issue".

However, the JNU students" union slammed the government for misleading the students with what they termed as an "eyewash.' They complained that the rollback was only for students below the poverty line.

Another languages student Shivraj Jagtap said university costs would be roughly tripled, reaching 12,000 rupees ($167) a month for some. "Education is not the birthright of a privileged few".
