Students are upset with the post made on Kerala Education Board
The RSS-affiliated National Democratic Teachers’ Front (NDTF) on Friday distanced itself from the remarks of a former president of the organization in relation to the Kerala State Board. Marx’s jihad comment has sparked controversy. Rakesh Kumar Pandey, Professor of Physics of Kirori Mal College, recently posted a post on his Facebook about Marks Jihad for the students of Kerala Board. In this, he alleged that the education board of Kerala has given 100 per cent marks to the students.
Rakesh Kumar Pandey gave an example in his post that 26 admissions were done in 20 seats of a course in a college. These admissions took place because it belonged to the Kerala Board, and everyone had 100% marks. After this, in his post, he has written in objectionable words that for the last few years, Kerala Board is implementing Marks Jihad. He has been the former president of the National Democratic Teachers Front, a right-wing organization affiliated with the RSS.
Protests also took place on campus
Protests broke out on the campus on Friday with Left organizations Students Federation of India (SFI) and All India Students’ Association (AISA) as well as the National Students Union of India condemning Pandey’s remarks. Meanwhile, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad-led DU Students’ Union burnt effigies of the DU administration, saying that the increase in the board’s marking has led to disparity in admissions. In a statement, the NDTF said, “Delhi University is open to all states and universities without any discrimination.” It is a central university open to the admission of students of all secondary boards. Students from all the states have equal rights on the basis of eligibility criteria to study in the best institutions of DU’s Central University status.
NDTF has nothing to do with the views expressed by any person on any State Secondary Board. Convenor Akhil K M said, “This phenomenon cannot be viewed in isolation, students coming to DU from Bihar and Haryana were the target of xenophobes in the 1990s and 2000s. DU is a central university and it should welcome students from across the country with an open heart.
