Govt says, continuation of agitation by JNU students not justified as main issue of hostel fees resolved

The Human Resource Development, Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has said, the continuation of agitation by JNU students is not justified as their main issue of hostel fee hike has been sorted out.

After several rounds of discussions, the JNU has issued a statement saying that the students are not being asked to bear the cost of service and utility charges.

 This was the main demand of the students. More than five thousand students have already registered for the winter season so far.

The Ministry had constituted a High-Powered Committee to restore the normal functioning of JNU through dialogue with all stakeholders and to advise the university administration on the contentious issues.

The minister said universities should not be converted into political arenas and appealed to the students to call off their agitation.
