JNU CONTROVERSY: STATUE UNVEILING CEREMONY VALUED 9.9 LAKHS

Another controversy is concocting in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) after an RTI reply disclosed that the varsity spent over Rs 9.90 lakh over the unveiling event of a sculpture of Swami Vivekananda on the campus. The statue was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi via video conference on November 12 last year.

In reply to the first question, the varsity said, No such information is available. Acknowledging the second query, it said that Rs 9,90,650 has been ratified towards the program of unveiling the statue.  The JNUSU has contended that the administration’s response was indicative of a scam. On one hand, the JNU administration says that there is no such data available for the need of funds. On the other, it has expended a huge amount on without any proposal.

Such a big expenditure was incurred at a time when the JNU administration claims it does not have the money to buy books and journals in the library. The library fund was reduced significantly in 2019. Students are incapable to access online classes. The condition of hostels is completely shabby and JNU administration does not have money to renovate it. However, it does have a large amount to spend on one event, it said. RP Singh, rector-III, chairman of the committee for the building of the statue did not respond to calls and messages made by this newspaper.
