New Delhi: Months after the unrest on February 09 in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), the JNU Student Union President Kanhaiya Kumar on Tuesday opposed the final report of High-Level Enquiry Committee (HLEC) set up by the University to probe the events on that eventful day.
The student’s Union said on Tuesday said that it was natural to protest against the Committee following the decisions taken by the committee. JNUSU has passed a resolution that it does not agree to the decision taken by the committee as the main issue was not mentioned in the report.
Expressing his disagreement, JNUSU president Kanhaiya said, “We will oppose this. We have just burnt the report and from tomorrow 9 pm there will be a March from Ganga Dhaba that will culminate into a fast unto death. We don’t accept any fine on any student. The Administration will now come and meet us; we won’t go to them. If they feel we should die then its fine.” He also said, “Why should even ABVP be fined? It’s ridiculous.”
“The government instead of fighting us politically is targeting us. We have questioned their policy and they attacked us. What is this enquiry, where students pay 251 rupees as fees so how can they pay Rs 10000 and Rs 20000. The government only wants to silent us,” Kanhaiya said.
“We are not left by any option but to fight this now. This is the first year there’s been no academic council meeting in JNU. It’s because they’ve made changes in the education system. Instead they’ve come out with this report,” the JNUSU president said.
Reiterating that commitment of fighting against the very biased enquiry committee not only students even teachers resented this enquiry committee.
