Home: Madras varsity students continue sit in against CAA

Students of the University of Madras are continuing their sit-in strike for the second day in succession against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) on Wednesday, a protesting student said. 

“Around 25 students are inside the University of Madras campus in protest against the CAA. The protesting students belong to different departments. We have asked students from other departments to participate in the protest,” K. Karthikeyan, a second-year M. A. (Political Science) student told IANS.

 He said the police went out of the campus last night after the students told them that they are going to sleep. “Today the police are outside the University campus,” Karthikeyan said. On Tuesday night there were about 60 students protesting against the CAA. “Some students had gone home and will come back here. There are five girls who are here.

The University authorities have opened up the toilets for our use. We are yet to think about the food for the protesting students,” Karthikeyan added. Meanwhile, the University of Madras has declared holidays till December 23. Earlier, the University had declared holidays from December 24-January 1 owing to Christmas and New Year season. IANS
