SHILLONG, Feb 14 � The BJP today questioned the North Eastern Hills University (NEHU) authorities why the campus was turned into a "recruiting rally of the Congress party" in the guise of an interaction session of Rahul Gandhi with students.
BJP said National Students� Union of India (Congress� student wing) members were distributing forms to the students and the interaction was a sham to recruit students from the University into the party.
�Why should university authorities provide Rahul a political platform in the University to indulge in such recruitment drive for the Congress� Student wing?� BJP Spokesman Dipayan Chakraborty asked.
He added that NEHU authorities must be made answerable to such biasness that has sullied the sanctity of the place of learning.
�NEHU mustn�t be misused by any political party. It�s a central University meant to further knowledge and cannot be a political playground for any party,� he added.
Meanwhile, NEHU authorities have brushed their hands off the controversy. They say that the University was unaware of the nature of interaction of the Congress leader with the students.
