Nandita Narain, President of Federation of Central University Teachers Association (FEDCUTA), said teachers’ bodies of 40 central universities, including University of Hyderabad, have extended support to the agitation by the students and the teaching community of JNU. Its nothing but harassing and threatening those who dare to oppose BJP ideology, the FEDCUTA said in a statement.
“The event could be in bad taste but was not seditious. Whatever opposition the students have is against the present government and not against the Constitution. This kind of police action against the students on the pretext of national security is uncalled for,” Narain said.
