New rules to prevent student agitation in JNU IG News

Puber Kalam Webdesk: Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University has become the epicenter of the movement. The JNU campus sometimes roared with anti-ruling student movements. An anti-Modi BBC documentary was also shown there. Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Aishe Ghosh, Shehla Rashid emerged from the JNU student movement. The Modi government at the center does not look favorably on this hen hyperactivity of the university. Therefore various restrictions have been imposed on the student movement.

JNU authorities introduced new rules to prevent students’ democratic rights protests and dharnas. According to the new ‘Ekushey Act’, students will be fined Tk 20,000 if they participate in dharna, hunger strike or protest in the university premises.

And if any student gets involved in a siege or violent incident, behaves humiliatingly then he will have to pay a fine of 50 thousand rupees. He may even be expelled from the university. All degree certificates of the accused may be confiscated. The JNU Executive Committee has given its seal to this rule. As a result, the movement-protest may stop in the university campus, the Waqifhal community thinks.

In the new rules, 17 serious crimes have been mentioned by the university in this regard. These include illegal gatherings, forcible occupation of hostels, speaking or writing obscene and offensive words in university premises etc.

The new rules also state that a copy of the charge sheet against the concerned student will also be sent to his/her guardian. As soon as the new strict rules became public, criticism started on campus.
