A poster released by the JNU Students Union calls for the Prime Minister to “go back” and demands “answers” from the ministry of education.
It said the protest gathering was against “the anti-education and anti-student Modi government”.
JNUSU has also called for a protest gathering at the varsity’s North Gate at 5pm today, hours before the scheduled event at 6.30pm.
Students have been constantly attacking the varsity administration over the statue construction, calling it a waste of money.
The statue is 11.5ft in length and stands on a 3ft-high platform.
Dhiman told Times Now: “Finally, Mr Modi is going to visit JNU (virtually). The BJP and the RSS hate JNU and colour it as anti-national, tukde tukde gang leader. In October 2016, we had burnt PM Modi’s effigy. Today, all over India, farmers are burning his effigy. It would be the greatest disservice to the soul of Swami Vivekananda if PM Modi fails to address the problems of farmers.”
