Tense moments at Jamia protest today close to VC office as students affiliated with ABVP protested outside Jamia Millia Islamia, demanding CUET for admission.
A video which surfaced showed tense moments between students and university Bull. Security was also stepped up outside the campus.
The students demanded admission in all courses through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET).
The CUET was introduced last year for admission to graduate and postgraduate courses by the University Grants Commission (UGC). However, earlier this month, the JMI announced that it will stick to its own admission process.
“We are gathered here to protest against the non-adoption of CUET. When every central university has adopted it then why is there an issue with Jamia,” a student Ashutosh said.
The protesting students were seen ourside VC office holding saffron flags and placards saying ‘End the admission scam’ and ‘Bring CUET’. They raised slogans demanding the adoption of CUET for all courses.
They also claimed that PhD scorecards have not been given by the university yet.
