Recently while speaking over the violent protests prevailing across the nation against the Citizen Amendment Act, West Bengal's Governor Jagdeep Dhankar asserted that the state must re-establish itself as the cultural heritage of the country and work towards restoring peace this New Year.
Amid nationwide protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the Jadavpur University students have now written an open letter rusticating West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankar as the Chancellor of their university. The development comes a day after a Jadavpur University student tore the Citizenship Amendment Act and chanted "Hum Kagaz Nahi Dikhayenge", "Inquilab Zindabad" on stage during a convocation ceremony.
Displaying their disapproval of the West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankar, students of Jadavpur University on Monday, showed black flags to the governor as he arrived at the university, according to ANI. Visuals show students carrying several posters displaying 'Shame Shame Governor', 'No CAB, No NRC' shouting slogans at the governor. The governor who was reportedly stuck inside his car, unable to move ahead, has finally been able to enter the premises. Dhankar arrived at the university to attend a meeting of the Court of University.
