Kolkata: The JNU administration has protested against a 2016 demonstration by Oishee Ghosh, a former student leader of Jawaharlal Nehru University, and other students. The university at the time termed the demonstrations and movements by Oishee Ghosh as undisciplined and shameful. In response to the notice, Oishee Ghosh said that the university authorities were doing this to intimidate the students as the administrative office was closed due to the Corona epidemic.
University Chief Proctor Rajneesh Kumar Mishra has admitted the incident. Asked why the notice was issued after three years, he said the students had besieged the university for a long time with the increase in fees and thwarted all work. Then the epidemic started in 2020, and now we have started this process.
The notice said that the movement shown by the students at that time was dangerous. Also, all acts of violence such as siege, harassment, obstruction of academic and administrative work of the university or incitement of violence are against Article 25 of the Constitution of the University. The notice called Oishee Ghosh’s protest demonstration “indiscipline and misconduct” and sought an answer from him.
Oishee Ghosh has been given till June 21 to respond to the notice. Oishee wrote in a post on Facebook that no administrative office at JNU is functioning due to the epidemic. There is a water crisis in Kampala. Students are not being vaccinated. But the chief proctor’s office has stepped in to intimidate and punish students.
