PROTESTING AGAINST remarks of state BJP president Dilip Ghosh, who had referred to girl students of Jadavpur University as ‘below standards’ and ‘shameless’ for allegedly falsely accusing ABVP supporters of molesting them, Congress workers took out a rally at Hazra on Sunday demanding an unconditional apology from the senior leader.

Burning Ghosh’s effigy, they also demanded his removal from the post of state BJP president.


Congress workers also protested against the appointment of UP-based BJP leader, Narendra Gaud, to the governing body of JU by Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi, saying that it was an attempt to saffronise academic institutions.

Ghosh on Saturday had said there was no need for female students to be present at the screening of the movie, Buddha in a Traffic Jam within the campus recently. “If they were so worried of getting molested, why did they go?” he had said.

Maintaining his stance on Sunday, Ghosh on his Facebook page questioned parents of JU students on whether they wanted to have an education system where students would indulge in indecent activities inside the university campus.
