Protests have flared up across the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) campus as students have alleged that the university has gone without the requisite water supply for the past five days, as reported by India Today.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU), which represents the interests of the students, had complained that the administration had done nothing to rectify its complaints.

“There is a water emergency in JNU. From the past five days, no water has been given to JNU by Jal Board. JNU used to get 24 units of water, but now we get five units or no water at all," the Union was quoted as saying. To intensify its agitation, the Students Union has announced that it will launch a protest outside Delhi Jal Board office on 31 October.

On the other hand, the university officials have denied claims about the shortage of water. All the central posts of the Student Union are held by the Left Alliance, while the Delhi Jal Board is controlled by AAP led Delhi government.
