New Delhi:  Jawaharlal Nehru University Vice Chancellor Jagadesh Kumar was at the centre of trolls on social media yesterday over his tweet crediting Bhartiya Janta Party's victory in Uttar Pradesh to "development" and "inclusivity". Jagasesh Kumar is often accused of being a tool of RSS and BJP in the campus by the students and teachers in every protests since he took the charge as JNU VC last year. Mr. Kumar also sent his tweet to some journalists drawing sharp reactions.

Kumar was associated with Vijnana Bhaarti, an Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wing involved with Swadeshi Science Movement, before he took over as JNU VC.
 
"People of India have once again demonstrated overwhelmingly that we stand for development and inclusivity," said the VC in reference to UP Assembly election results.

Another twitter user said, "And a Vice Chancellor to a central university chimes in!"
