Students are the future of the country but what about the temples of the education where the student gets tips to be a good citizen. If we go through the statement made by R P Singh, Vice-Chancellor of the Lucknow University, we can find the truth behind the temples of education in Lucknow.
RP Singh said that
the Lucknow University has become a hub of crime where narcotics, arms and prostitution rackets thrive.
This is a big shame if it is true. Singh said further that students accused of crime and rowdies ruled the university. He said these words to the Allahabad High Court.
He urged to the court
to issue a directive to the Uttar Pradesh Government to look into the matter.
This is necessary to increase security on the campus and speed up pending criminal cases against students.
According to RP Singh, around 300 people are living illegally in the employees’ quarters and hostels. They have been here for long and their number is increasing.
He said even that a woman was living in the quarter had claimed to be a relative of University employee. Later the administration found that she was involved in prostitution racket.
On the other hand, the CM Mulayam Singh had said earlier that everything in the university is peaceful.
Later, the Vice Chancellor had ordered to shut down the university sine die and hostels cleared.
The Student leaders are protesting against union election that is being held with the Lyngdoh committee’s recommendations. Now, it has been postponed for a month after the protests.
