The statement said, “When the hostel committee first discovered these occupants, they were confronted and were forced to leave, however one of them returned. When confronted again, the occupant retorted to violence, and attempted to harm a student and a security guard with a pair of scissors. The situation could have escalated into a serious tragedy”

It further said, “While numerous students await hostel accommodations for nearly a year, individuals backed by ‘Sanghi’ wardens are occupying hostel rooms. Clearly, the administration’s narrative that PhD students are not vacating their rooms, leading to a shortage of hostels, is a fabrication of lies. Meanwhile, students who have not been allotted rooms due to the partial behaviour of the administration, have been penalised for living with their friends in other hostel rooms. An impartial committee, inclusive of a member from the Hostel Committee, should be established to conduct a comprehensive investigation into this matter”

JNUSU further expressed its solidarity with the Hostel Committee of Brahmaputra Hostel and the residents who are fighting against their “corrupt wardens”.
