Hyderabad: Students of English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) here continued their protest against rusticating three students from the varsity. Students of EFLU, Osmania University (OU) and University of Hyderabad (UoH) burnt the effigy of EFLU’s Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof. Sunaina Singh and raised slogans against her on Wednesday.
The agitating students said that they would intensify the protest and called for ‘Maha dharna’ and VC gherao on May 19. Students from central and state universities will also participate in the ‘Maha dharna’ on Monday.
“The university administration is dilly-dallying the issue. It’s awful that when the university is witnessing a series of agitations, the VC has gone on long leave. Although the university has appointed in-charge VC, he has no powers,” said Sandeep Patil, a PhD Scholar.
While protesting against undemocratic and Brahminical practices by the university officials, the students installed a statue of Dr BR Ambedkar at the administrative building on the varsity campus which will be inaugurated on Thursday. “Intellectuals, social activists, bureaucrats, political parties and students from various universities will take part in the event,” added Sandeep.
Swaroopa, another PhD scholar, said that the solidarity committee which met on Tuesday discussed about the injustice meted out to the students and that the committee is planning to meet Governor ESL Narsimhan.
“In the comings days we will intensify the protest and take it to the national capital. Students from JNU have also protested against the decision by EFLU officials. In a day or two they will stage a protest at Jantar Mantar,” she added.
