Journalism University in Rajasthan banned by Government
This academic year 2015-16, admissions into Haridev Joshi University of Journalism and Mass Communication have been forbidden by the Rajasthan Government, with effect taking its toll as soon as possible.
According to the documents directed to the University VC by the Joint Secretary of Higher Education, it stated that, “As the university is under review of the cabinet sub-committee the fresh admission process for various courses for the academic session 2015-16 is banned until next orders.”
Along with the students, the Vice Chancellor of the University also faced utter disappointment, as accordingly, the university initiated admission process 36 days prior this news came out. He was recorded stating that, “Four other universities are under review of a cabinet sub-committee, why only HJUJ is targeted.”
The university was established under the directive of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in 2012. In December 2013, the government steered by Vasundhara Raje took charge and systematically ordered total justification and filtration of all decisions made under Gehlot government.
This resulted in University being filtered and coming under the spot-light, resulting in the establishment of a sub-committee. The students under this university have shown real oppression against this decision and are objecting for the smooth performance of the university.
Latest, Jodhpur National University was under the scanner of the government and got banned immediately with the cause being providing 25,000 fake degrees to students over years.
