Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is closed since March last year. After continuous student protests, JNU researchers agreed to allow the students to enter the campus. Students were allowed to enter the campus in a phased manner.
So far, Jawaharlal Nehru University has opened its doors to students of science class, including Ph.D., MPhil under Phase 11. But now the demand for campus admission of first-year students is also gaining momentum. On Saturday, the students in the online class protested in such a way that the teachers were also surprised.
New students from the Center for Political Studies studied during the online class by writing ‘Reopen JNU’ on their profile picture on Google Meet and symbolically opposed the online class. More than 50 first-year students adopted this unique method of protest.
First-year student Uttam Tripathi told that they are having problems in understanding the technical problems of the class as well as in the online class. In offline class, they can talk to the teacher and solve our questions and doubts easily.
ABVP President Shivam Chaurasia stated that more than 100 students are being made aware of online class problems daily to ABVP. ABVP has demanded from the university administration to ensure the campus return of students by following the COVID-19 protocol.
ABVP JNU Minister Rohit Kumar said that the organization is constantly in touch with the administration and they are informing the administration through a letter on the problems/issues of new students. There have been protests at the Dean’s Office, marches on campus, etc. And in the coming days, they will decide further plans on the suggestion of new students.
