Agitation and student protest at BHU South Campus over RSS flag removal, deputy chief proctor resigns

The agitating students protested before the University administration and demanded the resignation of the deputy chief proctor for removing the flag.

Students of Banaras Hindu University’s Rajiv Gandhi South campus in Barkachha reportedly staged a dharna (sit-in-protest) demanding the resignation of the college’s Deputy chief proctor Kiran Damle alleging that she had uprooted the RSS flag from the campus during a Shakha (session) organised by the students of the college.

Kiran Damble while resigning, reportedly admitted her mistake and apologised for his actions and said that he had ordered the flag removed as it was on a path.

As per reports, the resident students of various hostels in the college reportedly organise such Shakha’s every morning in the playground within the campus. On Tuesday, many students had put up an RSS flag to set up a Shakha. The deputy chief proctor, who reached the stadium during her morning rounds allegedly uprooted the flag stating that the flag had damaged the track since the students dug up a hole on the road to place the flag. This angered the students who then staged a dharna demanding her resignation and apology for displacing the flag.

Students have claimed that as they were practising ‘Pranayam’ and had their eyes closed, they could not see the flag being removed.

As the information spread, more and more students joined the agitation. Police reached the spot and urged the students to end the protest. MLA Ratnakar Mishra and RSS district Karyawah Chandramohan also reached the campus and criticised the deputy chief proctor’s reaction.

Police confirmed that Chandramohan had filed a complaint against the proctor and a case has been registered against her.

Meanwhile, Damble has said that she had no idea about the rules of the RSS flag and confirmed that it has been kept safely. Damle furthered that some outsiders had misguided and instigated the students.
