Students shouted slogans against BJP member and TV actor Gajendra Chauhan, who has been appointed as the chairman of the institute, and against the "wrong policies of the government" in the protest, held outside the main entrance of Mumbai University campus.

"Education has been degraded due to the obstinate ways of the government," the students, who displayed placards against the BJP-led government at the Centre, said.
