“Actually what happened in these two days is nothing but a planned conspiracy by high level policy makers of Indian government with the collaboration of Telangana government to suppress the student’s movement which emerged as a huge political and democratic force against the RSS and BJP and became a challenge to Modi government”, CLMC said in a press release.

It further said that it received information large numbers of students were missing, many were injured severely and several students and few faculty members were detained by the police. The police even threatened the female students of sexual assault, passed sexist and racial comments apart from dragging them.

It also alleged that VC Appa Rao with the nexus of police stopped the supply of water, closed the messes, cut off the electricity and internet services.

“Now the situation at HCU is dangerous and the lives of students and faculty are under threat. All the fundamental rights of the students are snatched away; there is no space for democratic rights”, CLMC said.

Demanding to release all the students and faculty who are detained and arrested by the police, CLMC said, “In fact it is greater conspiracy of the Hindutva forces to implement their fascist agenda at the universities of India by suppressing the democratic forces.”

CLMC also appealed people to stand with the students of University of Hyderabad in the greater interest of social justice and democratic rights.
