Delhi HC suggests ‘prevent outsiders from entering JNU and things will improve’

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium Delhi HC suggests ‘prevent outsiders from entering JNU and things will improve’

NEW DELHI, APRIL 13 (ENA) The Delhi High Court on Wednesday proposed that “outsiders” should be stopped from entering the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus for things to “improve”. Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva, who was hearing an appeal by the university authorities to prevent students from staging a demonstration within 100 metres of the administrative block suggested, “We have to close the campus to students of other universities. If the JNU campus is closed for outsiders, things will improve.”

“For the last many years, JNU has been known for its own culture inside the campus. It has never allowed others to interfere in its functioning. Today, however, outsiders are more active on this campus,” the court observed.

The court’s observations come days after Human Resources Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar criticized JNU and Jadavpur University for securing top spots on the India Rankings 2017 released by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF).

Javadekar had claimed that the two universities featured on the list because of strong research output and not because of students shouting “pro-Afzal Guru” and “anti-India” slogans on campus.
