Isn’t it shocking to hear that the Age old legacy, The Jawahar Lal Nehru University, name has been suggested to be retitled? During delivery of a speech arranged by Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad at JNU, North West Delhi MP Hans Raj Hans said that the Name of the Varsity should be changed and be named after Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr Hans came to gave a performance at the Musical Event named “Ek Shaam Shaheedo ke Naam”. Here he spoke about the Defanging of Article 370 and expressed that Kashmir would now become a paradise. He said he was deeply praying for the settlement of peace in the Valley.

In the prelude of his speech the BJP MP uttered that  The Kashmir’s Issue was the outcome of the Egregious mistakes committed by our Elders which eventually implied that it was the pas of Jawahar lal Nehru which are now being rectified by the Nobel deeds of Narendra Modi. And for the remarkable contribution by the Narendra Modi the University be named as the ‘Modi Nehru University’.

Manoj Tiwari was also attending the event. He said the Varsity has seen many developmental changes in the last few years despite of some anti national slogan being delivered.

As soon as the statement was released by Mr Hans , NSUI National Student Union of India strongly criticized the suggestion and said it is going to vitiate the peace of the University. The officials of NSUI said that “Our Country needs 1500 more Universities by 2020. If the BJP leaders wants the Universities named after their leaders they can open them and get the children enrolled”. Many students ridiculed the statement and reacted on social media. According to students the leader who did not even knew the name of the University, suggested it to be renamed is a mockery.
