NESO opposes Rahul�s visit to Nagaland varsity

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Oct 12 � Stating its stand against politicization of educational institutions and universities, and more so against formation of politically affiliated student bodies in schools, colleges and universities, the North East Students Union (NESO) has questioned the intention of the proposed visit of Rahul Gandhi, Congress general secretary in-charge of National Students Union of India (NSUI), a Congress-affiliated students� union, to Nagaland University on October 17.

The visit has been preceded by the arrival of Paritosh Roy, national general secretary of NSUI, a press note issued by NESO chairman Samujjal Bhattacharya and special coordinator NSN Lotha said.

In this regard, the NESO strongly stated that no political party or political personality should visit an educational institution with politically motivated interests.

The release also recalled that the All Assam Students� Union (AASU) had shown black flags and blocked the entry of Rahul Gandhi to Dibrugarh University on September 23 last year �because the intention of Rahul Gandhi was to motivate and encourage the students to join and strengthen NSUI�.

It said the action of AASU should be a clear message to all political parties trying to vitiate the atmosphere of educational institutes with political agenda.

While assuring that it holds high respect for Rahul Gandhi as an upcoming young leader of India, the NESO, however, said if he attempts to pollute the minds of the students with his political ideology it would be compelled to safeguard the interest of students.

The organisation, therefore, urged the Naga Students� Federation (NSF) to take appropriate action towards the proposed visit of the Congress general secretary and block his visit to Nagaland University if his interest is to promote NSUI movement.

NESO reiterated that educational institutions and universities are not a grazing ground for politicians, rather it is a place for learning and its sanctity should be respected by one and all.
