Hyderabad, February 3, 2024

In a bold demonstration of dissent, students at the Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University (PJTSAU) have raised their voices against the government's decision to allocate 100 acres of university land for the construction of a new high court. Today marked a significant escalation in their protest as they boycotted semester-end examinations, locking down the campus and disrupting scheduled exams.

Expressing their adamant stance, students from various academic levels refrained from participating in the examinations. Second-year undergraduates abstained from theory exams while third-year students skipped their practical assessments. The resolute action aimed to draw attention to the contentious issue and register their protest against the proposed land allocation.

"We completely locked down the campus today. Students at campuses in Sircilla, Jagtial, and Warangal among others also boycotted exams," stated B Surrender, a PhD scholar, reflecting the widespread solidarity among the student body.

Despite sustained protests over the past month, students lamented the lack of engagement from both government officials and university administration. "Today was the last exam for second-year undergraduate students. They too boycotted the exam and joined the protest," noted Raj Kumar, emphasizing the unified front presented by the student community.

Support for the student cause extended beyond campus boundaries, with the student wing of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) actively participating in the protest. The convergence of student voices, under the leadership of PhD scholars, underscores the gravity of their concerns regarding the proposed land allotment.

Central to their demands is the withdrawal of GO 55, which sanctions the construction of a high court building on university grounds. Students argue that surrendering 100 acres of land would disrupt the delicate ecological balance, adversely affecting both flora and fauna while severely impeding vital research activities.

The ongoing agitation reflects a deep-seated determination among students to safeguard the integrity of their academic institution and preserve the invaluable resources it encompasses. As the standoff persists, stakeholders await a resolution that addresses the legitimate grievances of the protesting students while balancing the broader interests of the community.

In the face of escalating tensions, the fate of PJTSAU's land allocation hangs in the balance, awaiting decisive action from concerned authorities in response to the impassioned plea of its students.
