New Delhi: JNUSU says CRPF deployed on campus, admin denies the charge
Confrontation between Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) and administration took a new turn on Monday, with vice president of the students'' body claiming that CRPF personnel had been deployed on the campus to put students behind bars, a charge rejected by the management.
New Delhi (IANS): Confrontation between Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) and administration took a new turn on Monday, with vice president of the students'' body claiming that CRPF personnel had been deployed on the campus to put students behind bars, a charge rejected by the management.
"JNU admin calls CRPF in campus. Shame. JNU VC wants to jail 8,500 students," said a message shared by JNUSU vice president Saket Moon along with pictures of CRPF personnel.Calls to the JNU registrar Pramod Kumar for a reaction on the claims went unanswered.But a senior official in the administration asserted that no CRPF personnel were on the campus, though deployment was made outside its gates to make sure that the university is prepared for any "emergency"."There is no CPRF or police deployment in the varsity. Anyone can come and see it. The claims are nothing but an attempt to misguide students," the JNU administration official said.
The JNUSU which was scheduled to lead a march to the administration office on Monday after a seven-day strike against fee hike in hostels, suddenly withdrew the plan and decided to march to the Vasant Kunj police station to file a "missing" report for JNU Vice Chancellor MamidalaJagadesh Kumar.
The move evoked criticism from the opposition student wing ABVP, which had earlier provided JNUSU its support in the protest against fee hike.
In a statement issued on Monday, ABVP said, "The JNUSU has proven that it has no further plan of action. They have diluted and diverted the common student''s movement. By choosing to go to police station, the JNUSU is only breaking the students'' unity."
