Jawaharlal Nehru University student Rahul Rajkhowa whose rap against the university's new admission policy received a fair bit of attention online, spoke to Firstpost about JNU and the Vice-Chancellor. The university's seat cut has left many students who wanted to pursue further studies stranded. Rajkhowa says the seats have been slashed by 80 percent, affecting his batch the most— second-year postgraduate students.
