They were protesting against the reduction in seats, hike in fees, teachers holding more then post of profit and to restore the rule followed in admission against Urdu, Arabic and Persian quota.

Student leader Abhishek Shukla, Ziya Qonain Rizvi, Awinash Singh led the agitating students. AU Chief Proctor Prof Jatashankar Tripathi was also present on the occasion.

Addressing the students, Shukla said that the numbers of students, passing the intermediate results have increased substantially, but the AU administration has reduced the seats. He said the career of students would be ruined if they did not get admission due to inadequate seats.
