One of the main demands of the PG student body representatives in the December 7 discussion was to appoint NAJRs. The government immediately intervened and within two days issued an order on December 9 authorizing their appointment. The new people went on strike saying that the order was not clear and that they did not know who would be appointed. However, the application was called in such a short period of time and so many people were immediately appointed.

PG admission has been delayed due to the Supreme Court considering petitions on the SEBC and EWS reservation provisions. The government can do nothing about it. That is why NAJRs are recruited till the first year PG admission takes place. The minister demanded that the people should withdraw from the agitation as the main demand raised by the protesters has been resolved.
