Complete Interview with HPU Vice Chancellor, ADN Bajpai
A couple of days ago, two HW members approached the HPU Vice Chancellor, ADN Bajpai, and had a few words regarding some critical issues, such as his attitude towards student grievance and their protest against massive fee hikes, the heaps of garbage inside and around the university, and the girl who was abused and assaulted by HP Police during last lathicharge at HPU Campus.
As expected, we didn’t get clear answer for any of questions regarding the ongoing scenario. Regarding the brutality of police on the protesting student, the VC denied to take any responsibility saying that he had nothing to do with the police haunting the campus. He was of the opinion that the police could use shoot-at-sight orders if required. Also, that to touch a person sitting at such a revered position as that of the VC of an educational institute is VVIP category issue.
However, the students of the university are continuously suffering the lathicharge and abuse of police, but that did not concern the VC at all. Take a look at complete interview (Two Parts).
