JNUSU demands the resignation of VC
The JNU Student Union (JNUSU) has demanded the resignation of Vice Chancellor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar. This Vice Chancellor is a cowardly Vice Chancellor who introduces illegal policies through the back door, runs away from student or teacher questions and then fabricates a situation to demonize JNU, a JNUSU statement said. For almost seventy days, JNU students have been fighting a brave battle to save their university from the clutches of privatization and greed. The VC insists that by sending a message that there has been an increase in fees at JNU, it can demonstrate that accessible education is not possible, he added.
