JNU has been embroiled in controversy over the past one month as the university students resorted to vandalism and hooliganism against the administration protesting against the proposed fee hike in hostels. The students even went to the extent of holding professors captive as they protested against the fee hike.
Now, as part of their ongoing protest, the JNUSU planned to boycott the semester exams scheduled from December 12. Having had enough, the university administration has given an ultimatum to the students to attend the exams else they stand to lose their studentship.
In a circular issued by the university, it cautioned the students “about the consequences of not completing academic assignments and tests, including end- semester examinations, as per the relevant academic ordinances and rules”. Students not appearing in the exams would lose their studentship as per JNU academic ordinances, the university said. The circular read, “Such students will be ineligible to register in the next semester and hence will cease to be the bonafide students of the university.”
It further stated, “This is also to remind the research scholars that the M. Phil students who fail to secure a CGPA of 5.00 on completion of course work at the end of 2nd semester will find their names automatically removed from the roll list of the university.”
Notably, JNU has also been giving a bad name to the student politics, which generally confine itself to welfare and well being of the students and institutions, however the students of JNU have become a blot on the renowned Indian academic system. Every now and then, the institution is in the news for all the wrong reasons as the university has been hijacked by the communists who in turn, regularly resort to hooliganism and vandalism.
Alike their communist brethren of Kerala and West Bengal, violence and stupidity are the only two virtues through which the Communist politics in JNU flourishes. Left-liberals such as Ravish Kumar have further applauded this stupidity of the JNU students claiming that the fees hike and even imposition of existing university rules is not only detrimental, but have equated this move by the JNU administration as a blatant ‘classist’ action against poor students.
It must be mentioned that the JNU PhD research students receive a monthly stipend of Rs. 28,000 from the government and the topics that they do their research on are a testament to how the students are just there to enjoy their lives at the expense of taxpayer’s money. The subjects and topics of their research, show that their researches are a total wastage of the public money. The way the students of JNU have spread hatred against the very country, which has given them everything they have, show their sub-developed ideology and childish politics of hooliganism and vandalism. JNU needs strong administrative intervention in order to regain its lost repute of being a great institution.
