The University of Hyderabad 50 faculty members went on mass leave on Tuesday, to protest police crackdown on the campus and the return of Vice- Chancellor P. Appa Rao. This affected important end of semester classes, which sparked widespread concern.
The Joint Action Committee for Social Justice (JAC) asked students to resume studies while protesting, since it was the end of the semester and an important time for their future.
“We appeal to the students to use blue ribbons as a means of protest, while going about their classes, labs and other activities,” the JAC said, in a statement.
Last week, Appa Rao — currently under judicial probe in the Rohith Vemula case — returned to campus after a two-month-long leave. Students protested outside his house, broke window panes, smashed doors and the television, while shouting slogans. They also vandalised his office and there was reportedly, a lot of damage caused. The students were arrested and the university has been under complete lockdown since then.
JAC said is also gearing up to welcome students and faculty members who will be returning to campus after their release from jail in the evening. It plans a long march and public meeting on the campus.
