Why disturbing women varsity?

NEW DELHI: Assam Congress MPs staged protest in New Delhi on Tuesday alleging the BJP-led government’s move to cancel the recognition of Assam Women University in Jorhat.

Led by state Congress president and Rajya Sabha MP Ripun Bora, the MPs stood in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statute at the Sansad Bhawan premises in the morning where they raised voice of protest against the move.

They said the Sonowal government in Assam has been trying to downgrade the varsity to a technical institute much to the utter disappointment of hundreds of girl students who have been pursuing various courses there.

They asked the Centre not to disrupt the varsity’s status and immediate measures to uplift it. Lok Sabha MPs Gaurav Gogoi and Sushmita Dev also participated in the protest.
