PM Modi BBC Documentary: Prime Minister

The registrar said, "On receiving the information, the security team and the Dean, Student Welfare reached the venue and requested the organizers to stop the screening of the documentary. However, the organizers did not accede to the request and continued with the screening of the controversial documentary in the presence of some students."

‘Students violated university rules’

Devesh Nigam said that the students have violated the rules of the university by not taking permission before the screening. However, he added that no untoward incident took place during the screening and the campus is calm and peaceful. The Registrar further said, "The University has sought a report on the program to take further necessary action."

There was a ruckus in JNU too

Let us tell you that even in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), students had announced the screening of the documentary, but the university administration cut off electricity and internet connection in the campus. However, an official of the JNU administration told PTI on condition of anonymity, "There has been a serious fault in the power supply line in the university. We are probing it. The engineering department is saying that it will be resolved as soon as possible."
