It is this reputation of Bharti’s — of being a people’s person who gets work done — that is likely to be the biggest challenge for both BJP’s Shailender Singh Monty and Congress’ Neetu Verma Soin, contesting from the Malviya Nagar assembly constituency.
While BJP candidate Kapil Mishra’s tweets were pulled down on directions of the Election Commission (EC), they are not the only social media posts the Delhi Chief Electoral Office (CEO) has found problematic.
The letter, dated January 16, was sent to Pawan Diwan, Under Secretary, EC. Along with the letter, the CEO office attached three videos containing the digital content, which includes seven videos by the BJP, three videos and a post by the Congress, and two videos and one post by AAP.
“I’ve learnt from friends and witnessed through public channels with alarm, and now with disgust, how your handling of situations as JNU’s administrative and academic head led to its steady deterioration, paving the way to its intellectual disintegration,” wrote Bhaduri, who taught at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning.
An excellent teacher, or a bad administrator? A robotic stickler for rules, or a man with no respect for them? A square peg in a round hole, or a humble misfit everywhere? The Indian Express finds out what makes Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar the face of the JNU unrest
The Delhi Police had written to Registrar Pramod Kumar on January 7, saying this should be done “on top priority”. On January 10, the Dean of Students Welfare (DSW) sent a circular in this regard to all senior wardens.
Besides Ghosh, others named in the attack are Dolan Samanta, Sucheta Talukdar and Chunchun Yadav — all from AISA. Others include Pankaj Mishra, a student of Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health; Vaskar Vijay Mech from the School of Arts and Aesthetics; and Priya Ranjan from the School of Languages.
The nearly 2,000-strong crowd, comprising teachers, students and political leaders such as Sitaram Yechury, Sharad Yadav, Manoj Jha, D Raja, Brinda Karat and Kiran Walia, marched to the National Archives — where they were stopped by police barricades.
The FIR states that following this, 20 students, including Ghosh, “indulged in physical violence, pushed lady guards, verbally abused and threatened them with dire consequences if they opened lock of CIS door. Few guards were beaten up”.
The police, which came under fire for storming the Jamia Millia Islamia campus and targeting students inside the library last month, remained silent on how roughly 100 people were able to run riot inside the JNU campus for close to three hours despite the first phone call to the police control room being made at 4.57 pm Sunday.
The over 30 injured students and teachers, meanwhile, said the V-C had not reached out to check on them. The V-C also stressed on how the administration would “ensure that their winter semester registration will take place without any hindrance”.
