It was a deliberate attempt by Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers' Association (JNUTA) and Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) office bearers to spread lies and misinformation on social media to defame a sacrosanct body like the academic council (AC), the statement said.
The registrar had yesterday tweeted, "Offensive, abusive and unparliamentary languages used by the representatives of JNUSU and JNUTA during AC meeting is highly condemnable."
In another tweet, JNU Rector II Satish Chandra Garkoti said, "Those who failed to disrupt the JNU AC meeting are the ones playing victim on social media !!" Refuting the allegations, JNUSU president Mohit Kumar Pandey today asked the registrar to make public the entire proceedings of the meeting.
The 143rd academic council meeting, which was adjourned on May 9, concluded yesterday. It approved certificate course in Yoga philosophy and establishment of Special Centre for Disaster Research.
