JNU hostel, water issues: ABVP activists protest, demand answers from chancellor

Activists of the RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Thursday approached JNU Chancellor Ajay Kumar Dubey at the university and demanded answers on the dilapidated conditions of the hostels and the water crisis in the campus.

ABVP activists said Dubey’s “insensitive and unserious attitude” towards the problems faced by the JNU student community is a clear manifestation of “insensitivity and criminal negligence”.

“ABVP JNU staged a protest gheraoing the corrupt chancellor of JNU and demanded answers on scholarships, hostel renovation, water crisis, Rs 56 crore fund, release of JNU PhD forms, specialized service health centre, E-Rickshaw, railway reservation center and other student related issues,” ABVP activist Ambuj said.

ABVP said Dubey was harassed for about two hours until he managed to escape with the help of security. Dubey did not respond to PTI’s calls and text messages. ABVP said the student organization has been in an indefinite meeting for the past seven days. “While the entire campus is in crisis, the corrupt chancellor is busy running scams through his multiple NGOs,” Ambuj said, referring to the recent corruption charges leveled against Dubey.

A section of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) teachers has alleged that Dubey is running two NGOs from his university address in violation of university norms.

“Today we have presented a vision of our intentions, if our legitimate demands are not met, we will be forced to take strong action against the incompetent JNU administration,” Ambuj said.
