VISAKHAPATNAM: Five students from Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU), Visakhapatnam, met chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu Monday, requesting that their university be upgraded to the NALSAR-type university promised to the new capital of the state. They discussed the reasons behind their protests and told him how the university, which has students from over 18 states, might run into difficulties and lose its own special status if a new university were to be established. They requested Chandrababu Naidu to help them. The chief minister responded positively and said that they would look into the matter. The students were M Manaswini, Prasanna Swaminathan, J Sarath, Alaap Thomas and RK Kaikala.

The students of DSNLU have been protesting since the last four days against the state government’s decision of establishing a new law university in the capital city, which they feel could lead to the neglect of their own university.

According to them, a new university can bring a lot of issues, such as blocking the grants sanctioned to the varsity and shifting of opportunities. Besides opposing the setting up of a new establishment, the students also demand that their varsity be recognised. However, they also said that they are not against the government and stated that they will be protesting till the state government provides assurance that their problems would be solved.
