New Delhi: The Jawaharlal Nehru Student’s Union (JNUSU) said that it will take a march to Parliament today when the winter session will begin. Around 1,200 troops have been deployed outside JNU ahead of the students taking out protest to march to Parliament.
The Delhi Police have said that JNU students haven’t been granted permission to carry the protest and taking out the protest march would be a crime. Section 144 has been imposed outside JNU campus now.
The JNU Teachers’ Association (JNUTA) expressed their concern over the deployment of police force and said that such measures prevent the use of constitutional democratic rights and to stop the students from peacefully taking their voice beyond the campus would be unfortunate.
The students have considered the partial rollback in the hike of the hostel fee as announced on Wednesday as an “eyewash”. The JNUSU are of the opinion that when fee hikes are rampant across the country, the JNU students have emerged as the fist line of defence for inclusive education. They have also invited all the students of Delhi to join them as they march to Parliament.
