Arts campus of the Allahabad University (AU) on Monday again witnessed a protest staged by students pursuing LLB course from AU. A large number of students demonstrated at the office of the controller of examination demanding promotion to next semesters sans exams. The protests continued till late evening.

The students of LLB semester 1 and 4 (session 2021-22) were demanding that the proposed LLB first and fourth semester examinations, scheduled from July 7, should be postponed and all the students should be promoted. AU administration has already refused to accept their demand and has decided to go ahead with the offline exams.

The agitating students demanded that the classes of LLB second and fifth semester should start from the first week of July. They were contesting the varsity’s decision to conduct the offline exams while claiming that the session was lagging due to Covid and maintained that the examinations of one semester (that lasts six months) cannot be held on the basis of classes held for just one month.

Last week, 19 students of LLB were detained by the district police from AU following their protest on the campus. Eighteen of them were let off on personal bonds while one was sent to jail.

As AU reopened for normal functioning on Monday, large number of protestors arrived at the CoE office and started raising slogans. Holding placards in their hands, they shouted slogans against the varsity administration and demanded that they be promoted to the next semester.

Since Monday morning, heavy police force was deployed at the controller’s office and at the varsity gate located near central library. PAC personnel were also deployed at the site.

“The students are protesting at the controller’s office since morning and they are continuing with their stir amidst heavy deployment of police force which is still deployed in the Arts faculty,” said AU’s proctor Prof Harsh Kumar.

Because of the dharna, functioning at controller of examination was adversely affected, varsity officials claimed.
