Kolkata, Jan 8 (IBNS): West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee has called the protesting students of Jadavpur University for a discussion to end the crisis on Friday (Jan 9).

The students of JU, who are demanding the resignation of the vice-chancellor, said they would go to Bikash Bhawan on Friday 2:30 pm to meet the education minister.

They said that they would gather at Salt Lake Karunamoyee crossing and go to Bikash Bhawan in a procession.

Demanding resignation of the Vice-Chancellor  Abhijit Chakraborty, they are on a hunger strike from Monday night.

On Sept 16 last year the VC had called the police to remove protesting students of the university from the main administrative building, leading to a crackdown on them and arrest of 37 students during the night.

The students were protesting against a molestation incident on the campus and demanding an impartial probe into it.
