“We have already submitted our semester fee and Jammu University authorities are doing injustice with us by further raising the fee”, he said, adding that a memorandum to roll back the fee hike decision was also submitted to Governor, Vice-Chancellor Jammu University, Director Kishtwar Campus and Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar, but no decision has been taken till date, which forced them to held protest.
If the decision of fee hike was not rolled back, then the students will launch agitation against the Jammu University authorities in aggressive manner and for any untoward incident the Varsity authorities will be responsible.
