No takers for JNU even in Bangladesh
According to the Feb 7 issue of the Hindustan Times, there are no takers for the seats offered by the Marxist bastion, Jawaharlal Nehru University, even in backward countries like Bangladesh.
The university scrapped the Dhaka exam centre last year because there weren’t many candidates.
This is not surprising, as JNU has never been known for academic excellence. Recently, JNU Teachers’ Association opposed the Indian tradition of respecting education. In 1989-90, JNU Students Union demanded that the minimum eligibility criteria for the junior research fellowship/lectureship examinations should be lowered from 55 percent to a level that would accommodate their intelligence.
