Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists launched protest on Monday in Aurangabad demanding refund of examination fees taken from students in Maharashtra.
The agitators made five demands to the Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU) administration including 30 percent reduction in fees for students for the academic year 2020-21 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Further they also demanded a refund of exam fees taken from students since tests have not been conducted in view of COVID-19.
The ABVP activists also raised slogans against the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government over alleged lathi-charge by police on students who tried to stop the convoy of Shiv Sena minister Abdul Sattar a few days ago in Dhule in north Maharashtra.
Talking to PTI, Professor Pravin Wakte, pro-VC of BAMU, said, "The university administration met the agitators and heard them. The issues raised by them will be placed before the Management Council at its upcoming meeting."
