New Delhi: Reacting to Jawaharlal Nehru University administration's decision to impose fine on Kanhaiya Kumar for his involvement in pro-Afzal Guru event at the campus, the student union president said that decision is unacceptable and termed the inquiry by a high-level committee as farce.
Kanhaiya, who has been fined Rs 10,000 by the university administration said that the student union rejects the punitive action handed down by the farcical committee.
Anirban Bhattacharya and Umar Khalid, who have been rusticated by the university administration, called the decision unacceptable and alleged that the authority's action amounted to witch-hunt under the diktats of RSS.
"The JNU administration declares its allegiance to RSS, once again! After allowing police to enter campus to unleash the worst repression...now the JNU admin has come down with its own list of punishments.
"A farce is what this inquiry has been from day one, made to witch-hunt and punish students by hook or crook. Do we need to remind you, Mr Jagdish Kumar (JNU VC) that unlike you the students and teachers of this campus are not pliant stooges of the RSS," Umar Khalid posted on Facebook.
JNU on Monday slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and rusticated Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya till one semester and till July 15 respectively.
