TDN World Desk: Besides academic excellence Jadavpur University is known for its student activism. Keeping its age-old trait, a student tore apart a copy of CAA to register her dissent over the law.
Raising slogans of ‘Inquilab’ and ‘Aazadi’, Debosmita Chowdhury, who hails from Arts faculty, said, “We won’t show any papers.” She said that this law wants us, the people of this country, to prove our Citizenship and tore a replica of Citizenship Act in pieces.
During Tuesday’s convocation ceremony a number of eminent guuests and administrative members have been present including the Register.
To shy away any misunderstandings, Debosmita said, ” Let there be no confusion I am not showing any disregard to Jadavpur University. I feel proud to be awarded this degree at my favourite institution. But I choose to use this platform to register my protest against CAA…my friends have sat on a dharna at the entry passage of the convocation venue.”
Debosmita further said that in their way to protests 25 of her batchmates didn’t turn up in convocation podium to collect their degree certificates.
