JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar Tuesday met Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in what was described by the Congress as a courtesy call. He was accompanied by other students’ union office bearers and members of the All India Students Federation.

NSUI chief Roji John said: “They thanked him (Rahul) for his continuous support. He not only supported the students at JNU, but also FTII and IIT Madras, where students have been protesting against the way government is attacking institutions. We will continue this fight to protect autonomy of institutions,” John said.


Rahul in a tweet said, “Met a delegation of student leaders from AISF and JNUSU President.”
