Speaking at the protest at Town Hall here, Arundathi said, “I’m here to show solidarity with the students and convey a strong message to the government that they cannot hijack the democracy of India, especially educational institutions.”

Meanwhile, a student said, “The police have been stationed outside the gates and they enter the campus whenever there is a small protest. This time when goons entered, they didn’t do anything.”
