Punjab: Rajiv Gandhi National University law students protest against sexism, maladministration; DU extends solidarity

Patiala: Protest by Rajiv Gandhi National University (RGNUL), Patiala law students against alleged sexism and administrative practices against fundamental rights continue on fourth day.

It began when six students in the boys’ mess began striking plates in unison to complain and protest against unhygienic food. Following, the administration issued a suspension order against the students, accusing them of hooliganism and indiscipline.

Huge number of students participated in the protest outside the university guest house against the incident, demanding immediate suspension of administrative officer for repeatedly making sexist remarks against female students.

On Sunday, the third day of protest at RGNUL despite a panel of judges from the Punjab and Haryana High Court recommending the university to revoke the suspension orders. The students were suspended following a protest against unhygienic food at a hostel mess.

Earlier, the Delhi University issued a “Statement of Solidarity” against the “the dispiriting and intimidating events which transpired at” the RGNUL.


Students said the vice chancellor still hasn’t reached out to them to hear their grievances. Instead, the administration has now reportedly deployed rapid action force personnel.
