The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) asks the hotel students who have been stranded here since lockdown, to go home. The university had previously issued a circular requesting the students to go to their native as the lockdown arises. However it also allowed the students to stay in their dormant if they are finding it difficult to reach the home, said the Dean of Students, Prof Sudheer Pratap Singh.
The lockdown has been prevailing since March 25. Since then four phases have been into practice. The norms are being relaxed now. The government is making arrangements for the stranded people to reach their homes.
The JNU wants the students to reach home as the coronavirus cases is increasing day by day.
Many students are opposed to this consideration. Though the transportations are being provided, students find it difficult to book the tickets amidst reservation. Also the university is planning to reopen around June 25 for regular students. With less than a month in hand, they find it challenging to travel back and forth in a month. They demand an alternative.
