Two days after the Delhi Police used brute force against students seeking justice for Rohith Vemula near the RSS office at Jhandewalan, students’ unions have decided to intensify their protest.
According to the Joint Action Committee on Justice for Rohith Vemula, an umbrella body of mostly Left-backed unions, students from across the country would conduct a march to Delhi tentatively on 4-5 February. Besides there would be rallies, torch-light processions and protest march to the Delhi Police headquarters in the coming days.
A group of students belonging to the joint action committee are on a hunger strike on JNU campus already. The CPI (M-L)-backed students’ body All India Students’ Association (AISA) has called for protest demonstration against the alleged police brutality at Delhi’s Police headquarters on Tuesday.
