While addressing the dharna, the speakers lashed out at the BOSE officers for misrepresenting fact before the higher authorities and thus delaying decision over the fate of hundreds of students.
The protest dharna was addressed by Pitamber Singh, Deep Singh, Manish Pathania, Rakesh and others.
Dr Hari Dutt Shishu announced that if their issue is not resolved, the ETT stakeholders would have no choice other than to further intensify their stir. Announcing  to gherao  the State Assembly on March 12, he welcomed the  removal of BOSE Chairman Bashir Ahmed, Secretary Renu Goswami and Joint Secretary Javaid Iqbal Khatib, who were called back to the parent Higher Education Department today. He hoped that the new Chairman would give a sympathetic view to the demand of ETT stakeholders.
