The students, sources in the Congress said, have approached Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, seeking his intervention to check the “assault on institutions of higher learning”.

    They had my sympathy all the way till dater in their fight against Gajendra Chauhan appointment but they lost it by asking Pappy Rahul hi to intervene. By gasking his help, they have lost whatever hope they had in mitigating the issue.. Take my word, Centre is going to keep Chauhan and will take action against students..

      Very apt. They should invite all type of drama/nautunki experts like papu , Didi and Kejri to this natorious insute before govt. closes it permanently to save tax payers money. In fact they too are as old as these FTII student goons to even join FTII as students! What a disgrace to call this place as 'reputed' when future the products are so low and stupid! They are no better than those IIT-Madras humanities students who call them-self as Periyar-Ambedkar group, just a bunch of leftist parasites.
