Strongly condemns the brutal police attack on JNU students’ peaceful march

The Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) strongly condemns the brutal police attack on Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students’ peaceful march to the Parliament on Monday that left at least 15 students grievously injured, including a visually-impaired student, demanding total roll-back of exorbitant hostel fees hike. They have been struggling for a month now, against these hefty fees hike which has become a virtual “rustication” order for students with family income below Rs.144000 who make up 40% of the student population in JNU.

CITU extends its solidarity and support to the struggling JNU students and calls upon its units to condemn the high-handedness of Delhi police, controlled by Modi regime and the insensitivity of University administration towards the plight of our poor and marginalized students studying in JNU. CITU urges upon the Central Government and HRD Ministry to initiate the discussion with them and to settle amicably at the earliest.
