JNU students take out rally to demand VC’s removal

New Delhi: At least 1,000 students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) embarked on a march towards the Human Resource Development Ministry on Tuesday, demanding the removal of their Vice Chancellor.

The students began their march from Mandi House with slogans, banners and placards denouncing Vice Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar for his “autocratic” ways in bringing an attendance rule into force which the students alleged was never passed in the Academic Council meeting.

More than 150 Delhi Police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were deployed along with a water cannon truck at the Shastri Bhavan which houses several ministries.
