More than two weeks after students staged a walkout against the government in Delhi’s Capital, the protesters were again in full force on Tuesday.
Students staged a sit-in on the campus of Delhi University for four days from November 10 to November 13 to protest against the police action against students protesting against the alleged rape of a woman.
A day after the walkout, protesters gathered at the entrance of the university to demand that the government ensure the safety of students and the police and ensure free access to their offices and campuses.
The government has not responded to students’ demands and students have said they will continue their walkout till they receive a response.
As students, they are not the only ones who have faced the wrath of the government.
Thousands of people have been injured and thousands of people detained by the authorities in recent months.
“We are not scared.
We have a duty to protect our rights and we will not leave them for anybody.
We will continue to fight until the government does its duty and provides us with adequate services,” said a student.
“The government does not respect the students and their rights,” said Anjali Pandey, another student.
