The core of the JNU quagmire has not been dissected. The VC is genuinely incompetent as an administrator, however what folk don't realize is, that their post-grad admission process was more like a foot-soldier-recruitment process. The VC disrupted that. Hence the shrieks.
- computerized exam (has its own issues) instead of a narrative one which recruited foot-soldiers with matching ideology

- minimum qualifying cutoff (50%)

- removing the travesty of deprivation points (quotas already exist!)

So, many PG/PhD seats vacant: fewer party-workers!
To identify the points leading to their simmering resentment, check this meandering article by their gang leaders. Very little focus on the academic angle of the exam (yes, MCQs have problems) but their multi-point resentment spills out.

Doctorates are high-echelon academic degrees, not for all and sundry

"JNU could not fill its seats in 2017–18..because of the policy that sets the minimum marks in the written exam to qualify for the viva voce part .. at 50%"
@ChandrusWeb Things which were making that den such a happening place:

"The 2017–18 admissions saw an 83% cut in seats for the research degrees of the university, and final admissions revealed that only 159 students were admitted..131 seats left vacant"…
