    A small wave is beginning in our universities just like in 1975-76. This wave will turn into a Tsunami before the 2019 general elections . In 1975-76 it was battle against dictatorship, the present struggle is against hate and fascism. The students are feeling the brunt of moral policing, polarization, divisions, lynchings, cow politics, hatred, rising prices, broken promises and no jobs.
