Shashi Shekhar, a civil engineering student, has decided not to accept his M Tech degree from the Prime Minister as a mark of protest. According to him, Singh is not in favour of a strong Lokpal.
"I will not accept my degree from the Prime Minister. I will accept it from someone who supports the Jan Lokpal Bill," says Shashi Shekhar. Another student and M Tech in Electronics, Chandra Kumar Patel, has chosen to wear an Anna cap instead of the traditional convocation cap when he goes to accept his degree from the Prime Minister. A group of IIT Kharagpur students are also sitting on fast in support of Hazare.
