Bengaluru: NSUI Stages Protest Against Christ University's Online Exams

The National Student's Union of India (NSUI), a student wing of the Indian National Congress, has offered solidarity to the students of Christ (Deemed-to-be) University and staged a protest outside the campus of Christ University, Bangalore on July 13. It is reported that the exams which were scheduled to happen in March, got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was re-scheduled to start from July 13.

The students cited a decision made by the Karnataka Government to promote all the intermediate semester students, based on internals and aggregates, without conducting exams for the 2019-20 academic year. Christ University stated that they are not bound to follow the decision since they are not a state-run University.

The students claim that the online classes were not efficient enough and that most of them have left their books and study materials at PGs and Hostels to go home during the lockdown. The protesters asked the University to cancel the exams and follow the guidelines of the state government.
