Chandigarh: Keeping in view the threat from the ABVP to disrupt an event, Panjab University on Wednesday cancelled the permission to hold a seminar in the Law Auditorium on the university campus. The SFS had b ooked a hall two weeks ago and also informed the Dean Student Welfare about the change of speaker. The SFS hold a protest outside the office of the Vice Chancellor, on Wednesday in this regard.
At that time they had not any issue regarding seminar and speaker. Now in the name of security the university authorities are suppressing the voice of dissent in favour of the ABVP alleged the SFS. We condemn the proposal of council to form a ‘protest panel’ which would decide any student activity in public place from seminar to protest.
The authorities are defeating the very purpose of university, a platform for critical thinking and discussing the wider issues of society. If authority would not agree then we will organise a seminar in an open space on the campus, said SFS activists. We condemn the “dramebaazi”: of the NSUI who initiated a ‘peace’ campaign as they are those who are generally involved in violence.
