Warning issued; JNU students continue to rollback of attendance

New Delhi: The protest over rollback attendance has been intensified even as the JNU administration issued a pictorial warning against the JNUSU president Geeta Kumari and other three members of union on Tuesday. The administration has imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 each for conducting a protest "Hazir Janab".
Moreover, students' union has announced that it will hold a protest march to the Ministry of Human Resource Development here on Thursday, demanding the removal of the varsity's Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.
Though the students have held various protests and online campaigns using the hashtag "#notourvc" inside the campus, this is the first time a demand for removal of the Vice Chancellor will be raised outside the campus.
One of the protesting student-activists informed that they will wait till Wednesday evening for the administration to organise an academic council meeting to repeal the attendance. Meanwhile, many teachers taught students outside classrooms on Tuesday. "Teachers are taking classes in sun light without any four walls," a student wrote on social media. "Because knowledge cannot be acquired with force. Therefore, both teachers and students demand freedom to exchange knowledge."
"Our principal demand would be the removal of the VC from his office," JNUSU Joint Secretary Shubhanshu Singh. Ever since the announcement of compulsory attendance, the students have been resorting to various ways of protest against the university establishment.
