The notice have received wide criticism from various student bodies. The AISA group claimed that resistance is their right and they would not seek any permission to resist. The notice has also been been rebuked keeping in mind the move of Delhi Police to use face-recognition software, and is taken as a sign of our country turning into a surveillance state.
