Web Desk‌Updated: Tuesday Jan 7, 2020

NEW DELHI : Hundreds of students from various universities on Tuesday, joined the solidarity march  led by CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and Politburo member Prakash Karat in Delhi.

The march in show of support for students of JNU, who were brutally attacked by masked men late evening Sunday, allegedly with knowledge of top political leaders of the ruling BJP, was intercepted by police about 200 meters  short of the campus.  Police raised barricades preventing the rally from reaching the varsity premises.




The Vice Chancellors attempt to silence students will not work, said Yechury.

VC should be ousted, culprits of Sunday violence should be brought to justice, fee hike should be rolled back, the Left veteran demanded.
