This protest took a serious turn when some students clashed with police and they were injured, detained and were charged with destroying public property.

The initial protest was done by the JNU students against the new hostel manual which shows the hike of single-bedroom rent from less than $1 to more than $8 per month. The security deposit was also doubled.

On Saturday, JNU students were joined by former students, activists, and left-wing Political organizations and called for free education for all. Instead of clashing and rash protesting, they sand satirical songs about issues like cow Protectionism and the government’s clampdown on dissent.

Some students said that education is the only bridge between the class and the income divide in this country. A former JNU student Kriti Shukla added that without free education one can not fight against discrimination or Poverty.

Students said that they won’t back down unless or until the lawmakers intervene in JNU’s fees hike.
