The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) has written an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ahead of his unveiling ceremony of  ‘Vivekananda statue’ on the campus premises, at 06:30 p.m. today, the Times Now reports. 

According to a TimesNowNews.com report, the union has also called for a protest gathering at 5 pm today at the varsity’s North Gate.

A poster released by the JNUSU calls for PM Modi to ‘go back’ and demands ‘answers’ from the MoE (ministry of education). 

The protest gathering is against “the anti-education and anti-student Mogi government”, reads the poster.

 

 

Earlier in the week, the University Vice Chancellor M Jagadeesh Kumar had said in an official statement that the PM would unveil a life-size statue of Swami Vivekananda installed in the university campus on November 12.  

The PM himself later confirmed the statement and tweeted today that he would be a part of the ceremony via video conferencing.
