Hostellers sent the ABVP members a live video of Hostel Superintendent threatening them not to attend the strike

The dharna strike of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) met a dramatic twist on Wednesday when the hostellers sent the ABVP members a live video of Hostel Superintendent threatening them not to attend the strike. The superintendent was threatening the students to avoid to go to dharna spot otherwise they have to be deprived of their degrees.

This activity of Superintendent made the ABVP workers more furious and they refused to interact with the Dean, College of Agriculture, Dr Om Gupta who reached the dharna spot to have a discussion with the striking students.
They leveled allegations against the administration of suppressing the students and their demands and also demanded the university administration to suspend the hostel superintendent with immediate effect.

It may be mentioned that senior hostel superintendent, Dr. Usha Bhale threatened the girl students staying the hostel to complain in police against them and also tried to terrorize them of not issuing their degree if they go to attend the strike. Meanwhile any student sent the live video of the superintendent while threatening them to the ABVP leaders.

Member of Rashtriya Krishi Aayaam of ABVP, Deependra Singh Tomer informed that the Agriculture university remained closed for two days following the ongoing strike of students under the banner of ABVP. The students had the demand to terminate comprehensive examination being conducted by the Agriculture University going against the provisions issued by the Vth Dean Committee of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).

Later Vice-chancellor, Jawaharlal Nehru Agriculture University, Profeesor Vijay Singh Tomer himself reached dharna spot to have a conversation with the striking students.

Proposing the students to suspend their strike till October 31, 2017, the JNAU Vice-chancellor assured them to take appropriate decision in view of students' future.
However, after detail discussion with the students, the ABVP leadership decided to postpone the strike till October 31 and if the university administration refuse to consider their demands, they will go with the strike.
