Chandigarh: Panjab University (PU) has become a center stage of protests off late. The latest face off took place due to massive fee hike by Panjab University authorities approved in last week of March. The protesters resorted to large scale violence on the campus which witnessed clash between students and police. Post violence, students are getting support from different quarters and the office of RaGa-Rahul Gandhi’s official twitter handle also did not waste the opportunity and showed its solidarity with protesting students.
“He (Rahul Gandhi), is very much concerned about the students, the way the police unreasonably added the sedition charges, we demand that DG of Chandigarh Tejinder Singh Luthra should be transferred and an inquiry should be initiated against him,” said a local Congress leader.
It is pertinent to mention that the sedition charges were withdrawn by Police against the authorities after facing flak from every quarter of the society. PU authorities stated that they had hiked the fee after following all rules and regulations and will not go back on its decision. DSP (Central) Ram Gopal said that they only retaliated after the students started pelting stones on the police personnel.
