Jamia students stage protest; demand reopening of campus, resumption of physical classes

Tuesday, 23 February 2021 | PTI | New Delhi

A group of Jamia Millia Islamia students staged a protest outside the campus here on Monday demanding the reopening of the university which has been closed since last year in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The students raised slogans demanding that the varsity should proceed with phase-wise reopening like the Delhi University and the Jawaharlal Nehru University.

A larger group of students had staged a protest last week questioning the university’s decision to keep the campus shut when other educational institutions were reopening with Covid-19 protocols.

A senior police officer said a group of around 20 students gathered outside the campus of Jamia Milia Islamia demanding the reopening of the varsity.

“ They want the university to resume classes, canteen and library. They staged a protest and left after a while. Nobody was detained,”  he said.
