City’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has withdrawn the hostel facilities and fined Rs 20,000 each to the students for protesting against Prime Minister Naendra Modi’s controversial ‘pakoda’remark.

PM in an interview said that selling pakoda is also counted as employment.

In JNU, students on February 5 decided to sell pakodas to protest against the statement as well as compulsory attendance that has been introduced in JNU recently.

 “There is prima facie evidence that you were involved in blocking the road near Sabarmati bus stand and at T-point near Administrative Block sinceFebruary 5, due to which inconvenience was caused to students, teachers, staff, visitors and schoolchildren. Vehicles carrying essential commodities to hostels, etc; were affected. Further, you were involved in forceful cooking of food at the protest site in spite of repeated requests from CSO (chief security officer) not to do this act. Moreover, you also forcefully laid an electric cable for screening of a movie at protest site at night. The above are acts of indiscipline and unbecoming of a student,” read an order by the Chief Proctor dated February 9, as quoted by the Indian Express.
