Members of the Congress backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) are sitting on an indefinite hunger strike since last 3 days demanding a 24 hour open Central library,U special buses,metro concession passes & reduction in fees at Delhi School of Journalism.
The protesting students along with Akshay Lakra,Delhi State President of NSUI entered the Central library at Arts Faculty last night around 11:30 PM and stayed there whole night to ensure the library remains open 24×7.
They have alleged that the authorities are promoting privatisation in the campus as there are not enough hostels in the University forcing students to stay in PG’s and the library gets closed around 11:30 PM forcing students to pay money at private libraries which have cropped up in the campus in last 2-3 years.
University authorities called police officials late night and the protesting students kept their ground at around 1:30 AM.
The University is yet to respond on this issue.
