NEW DELHI: Several students of Jawaharlal Nehru University demonstrated outside the University Grants Commission headquarters here on Thursday demanding better health care facilities and a fully-equipped 24x7 health centre on the campus.

The JNU Students’ Union also met some UGC officials.

“It has become clear that the JNU administration has been hiding behind the mask of ‘lack of funds’ to escape its responsibility. The UGC officials said under the 11th Plan, JNU has been provided a lump sum to meet its entire expenses and it is entirely up to the administration to decide its priorities on how and where to allocate these funds,” said JNUSU president Sandeep Singh.
