JNU should be cleansed, renamed as Subhas Chandra Bose University: Subramanian Swamy

Kanpur: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday stirred a controversy by saying that the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) should be renamed as Subhas Chandra Bose University.

The BJP leader that the JNU should be `cleansed`.

Earlier this month, Swamy had demanded that the JNU should be shut down for four months after the final examinations in May for "fumigating" the hostels by rejecting students who do not swear allegiance to the Indian Constitution.

 

"But those having proven record of being jihadis, Naxalites and LTTE terrorists must be expelled from the university," he had said in a statement.

Swamy had also said those students who have not graduated from bachelor's courses and those who have not got their master's degrees in three years should be expelled.

 

Notably, JNU is in spotlight these days after a few students allegedly shouted anti-national slogans within its premises on February 09.
