Hyderabad: Hyderabad Central University has not granted any permission to JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar to address a meeting on the campus, Vice Chancellor Prof Appa Rao Podile said on Wednesday.

"No body has approached for permission. Definitely, there is no permission," he told PTI in Hyderabad.

Kumar was scheduled to address a meeting on the campus this evening at the invitation of the Joint Action Committee for Social Justice, which had spearheaded an agitation earlier demanding "justice" for Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula, who committed suicide in a hostel room at HCU on 17 January.
