About a dozen students of Chanakya National Law University (CNLU), Bihar have undertaken indefinite fast since Monday demanding immediate placement. One of the fasting law students of a university demanding placements is battling for life in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital. But, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has no time to look into their case neither Bihar's Human Resource Development Minister P.K. Sahi have shown any interest regarding this issue.
"We are not asking for the moon. With no trace of placement for us, our future is at stake, but neither the university authorities nor the state government are bothered,"a student told the sources.Students sitting on fast with placards read "we want placement, we want to meet chief minister" and "Investment Rs.100 crore, result 80 unemployed", are not in a mood to give up their Gandhian mode of fight.Some of them also raised slogans, demanding resignation of the university's vice chancellor and registrar.
However, CNLU vice chancellor A. Lakshminath said all law universities face placement problems during their first few years.
