Despite receiving volley of criticism from people of all walks of life for his comment on Jadavpur University (JU) students, BJP state president Dilip Ghosh on Sunday refused to take back his comments on JU students.
It may be mentioned that Ghosh on Saturday said JU girls were shameless and alleged that they had made false allegations of being that they had been abused during the trouble which broke out between SFI and ABVP students over screening of the film “Buddha in a Traffic Jam”.
On Sunday once again he raised question on the morality of the students referring the way they had opted in the past to protest against various issues.
He said: “I have used the right language as it suits them. Do wearing undergarments by male students and female students putting up sanitary napkin or kissing each other publicly is decency?”
He said in one breath: “I think that I have used the right word, if what the students do is decency.”
This once again sparked off controversy as people from all walks of life on Sunday started saying that Ghosh was giving these explanations to justify his statement that he had said on Saturday.
He has also posted the same comment in a social network.
Congress held a rally protesting against the statement of Ghosh and they demanded necessary steps against passing such comments. They also burnt the effigy of Ghosh at Jadavpur on Sunday.
Condemning the comment passed by Ghosh, Congress leader Pradip Bhattacharya said that he believes that senior BJP leader would take necessary action against Ghosh for making such a statement.
Meanwhile, Governor KN Tripathi on Sunday said in a programme organised by a school that a child should start learning about culture and tradition from school level in a bid to be a good human being.
The schools also need to take steps in this regard. It is not enough to be a good student, but at the same time one also have to be a good human being.
