Joshi's take on JNU VC

BJP's veteran Murli Manohar Joshi issuing a statement on Thursday, Joshi said that the attitude of the V-C to not implement government proposal is "deplorable". He cited that even after HRD ministry's two attempts to settle the matter in JNU, "VC is adamant." He added that he should not be allowed "to continue  on the post."

Joshi was pointing out to the fee hike proposed in the hostel manual, against which the JNU students have been protesting since October. Joshi, who served as the HRD minister under Atal Bihari Vajpayee government claimed that the HRD ministry advised the V-C to speak to students and teachers regarding the fee hike, however., he did not do so.
