Lucknow: Pooja Shukla, a student leader of Lucknow University, has gone on a hunger strike outside the university to protest the administration’s refusal to release her entrance exam results. She had shown black flags to UP CM Yogi Adityanath in 2017 and was imprisoned for about a month following the incident.
 
She had demanded a written notice making the stance of the University clear and if their demands were not met, she would go on a non-violent fast until death from Monday. At 11 am today, the fast has begun outside the university gates.
 
“Shukla, who graduated from the University in 2016, gave the entrance examination for Master in Arts in Women Studies on June 4. When the result of the same came up on June 28, Shukla couldn’t find her name on the website. When she inquired about this with the University’s controller of examination, she was told that the orders to hold her results came from the “top.” According to Shukla, Lucknow University has a policy of showing results of even those who have scored no marks in the merit list. In the light of the same fact, not showing Shukla’s result is a violation of the University’s own policy,” TwoCircles.net reported.
 
“Pooja Shukla, who is a member of Samajwadi Chhatra Sabha as well as of Samajwadi Party, has said that denying admission result is a repercussion of her protest against the CM. However, the university has also stopped results of about 30 students who applied across 40 courses, without giving any apparent explanation to the students. Following this issue, Shukla met the University’s vice-chancellor with a delegation of five students. As per the allegations, vice-chancellor Prof SP Singh talked rudely with Shukla and her companions. Singh told students that the final decision to allow admission or not rested with him. Singh allegedly also told Shukla that her result was denied as a result of her protest against the chief minister of the state, despite the fact that Shukla was not even a student of the university when she waved black flags at Yogi last year. Sources at the university said that the allegations made by student leader Pooja Shukla are true, and the University has been taking such steps after interest shown by Dinesh Sharma, the deputy chief minister of the state, an allegation which is yet to be confirmed,” the report added.
 
She asked for support through her Facebook page detailing her protest, the administration’s actions through photos and videos.
