The student’s union of Jawaharlal Nehru University on Monday organised a protest outside the university campus in New Delhi over a number of issues including the fee hike, stated sources.
A protester was reported as saying, “For last 15 days, we are protesting against fee hike. At least 40% students come from poor background, how will these students study here?”, according to the sources.
Currently, the Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Convocation is underway on the campus. Notably, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu has been invited as the chief guest and he is present there.
