The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration has hit out at the JNU students’ union and the teachers’ association for disrupting academic council proceedings on Friday. Atul Johri — a special invitee by the V-C but not an academic council member — filed a police complaint against the students.

On Friday, the students had alleged that Johri and AC member Ashwini Mohapatra physically heckled JNUSU president Mohit Pandey. Additional DCP (south) Chinmoy Biswal said, “We have received complaints from Atul Kumar Johri and the JNUSU president. No FIR has been registered yet.” Registrar Pramod Kumar, in a statement, said the act of taking pictures and recording videos by student union members was “reprehensible”.

“More unlawful and unfortunate is the misuse of such recording by the JNUSU president, who posted selected clips on social media even when the meeting was going on…,” he added. Pandey, meanwhile, challenged Kumar to release the full clip.

      The central govt should, as a bare minimum, bring following strict rules, in all universities, especially trouble spots, like JNU, (a) evict all hostellers whose attendance is not upto required level and also evict those shameless parasite hangers-on, who do not pass out of their academic years and courses in first attempt, irrespective any caste, religion, influence. (b) compulsorily transfer all teachers or professors between government universities, IITs, NITs, IIMs etc, after 3-5 years, evict them from quarters and relieve from duties if they do not report within specified period in new place, (c) stop any ry, honorarium, expenses reimbur t of visitors and deputiees abroad, if their period of de tion is over, regardless of result.
