The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union has announced strike on October 5 in protest against the administration not inviting them for the academic council meeting.
The JNU students body alleged the vice-chancellor wants one timetable, one syllabus and one system for JNU. It said that JNUSU has been kept away from the academic council meeting, “where the dubious proposal of online entrance examination is being sought to be imposed”. The JNU administration, however, remained silent on the issue.
“The online entrance examination is a policy intended to destroy, dismantle and shut down JNU. Last year’s admission data with details of reservation are also being withheld by the vice-chancellor,” JNUSU alleged.
The JNUSU called upon the students to participate in the university strike on Friday.
“We cannot allow JNU VC to destroy JNU. Let’s stand united and resist this Draconian move,” read the message circulated by the students’ union.
The protest will be held outside the academic council meeting, JNUSU added.
