Kanhaiya Kumar, JNU student leader, was not permitted to enter the University of Hyderabad (HCU) campus. He was scheduled to address student gathering there. Police said that Kanhaiya was not prevented by them to enter the campus.
Senior Cyberabad Police official said, "It was the HCU security personnel who stopped him (Kanhaiya) on the Vice Chancellor's directions." According to the official, Kanhaiya himself stopped at the university’s entrance, and left after addressing the media.
Kanhaiya was greeted with slogans for and against him, when he reached the HCU along with Rohith Vemula's brother Raja and mother Radhika.
He said, "I came from JNU to HCU to support Rohith Vemula's cause. I want to say that we will have to fulfill Rohith Vemula's dreams. Social justice has to be brought in the country. This government is not listening to the voice of the students."
"Student is not being allowed to enter into the university campus. This is shameful. I blame university authorities and police. This fight is to save democracy and Constitution. We will not tolerate attack on democracy. We want freedom from casteism and untouchability. We would not have disturbed the peace on the campus had we been allowed," he said.
