JU VC turns down BJP pressure

Srinagar—Jammu University Vice Chancellor has refused to be cowed down by the pressure tactics of the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and its student wing Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), saying he will not allow the campus to be used for their political activities.
Jammu University VC Professor Ramjee Dass Sharma said on Tuesday that the campus was not ‘Ram Leela Maidan’ that could be used by political parties for their activities. Ramjee’s comments came after the BJP general secretary Ram Madhav slammed what he called the “obstinate behavior” of the VC to ban the party’s youth wing ABVP in all educational institutions in the region and said action would be taken accordingly.—KR
