Hubballi: The Karnataka State Law University (KSLU) students who were on indefinite protest against the offline exams have intensified their protest. Three students have taken an oath that they would not drink a drop of water until the Vice-Chancellor reverses his decision to hold offline exams for the students.
Gaurav Nayak, a student informed www.hubliexpress.com that three students sat on an indefinite fast condemning the VC’s decision, and one of the students suffered health complications due to the fast. The student was rushed to a hospital where he was administered glucose, and two others who quit the food have also suffered health complications.
He said more students would likely join these three students. He said the VC met the protesting students and sought time to consult the experts in this regard.
The official circular said that students who were promoted to the next semester without exams must write the previous term’s offline exam. However, students say if the teaching was conducted online, then why should they write exams offline?
The students’ protest began on Monday and continued on Thursday as well. Many students spend the night on campus, and they are steadfast in their decision not to leave until the VC reverses his decision.
Santosh Nandur, a student who fell ill due to continuous fast, spoke to www.hubliexpress.com that it was an injustice and he could not tolerate it. He said he was admitted but again joined the protest and said that he and his classmates would not leave the place till they got a fresh order from the VC canceling offline exams.
