Quotes

"This is an internal matter. I hope they will solve it soon. I have full faith in their governing board and authorities" said education minister Partha Chatterjee
"It's a wrong perception that the commission has not been functioning. It's just that we have been doing our work silently and sans any publicity. We will come out with suitable recommendations once the findings are complete" said an official even as he admitted that the number of complaints to the panel has dropped drastically
...JU Sociology teacher Dalia Chakrabarti echoed a similar view. "We have a postgraduate course for sociology. We take students based on their performance in university examinations. We do not hold any entrance test. But filling up seats under the reserved category has never been a problem" said Chakrabarti...
Former EC member of Jadavpur University and teacher Partha Pratim Biswas said: "A model statute is welcome as a reference document for those who have not formulated theirs. But for those who have already made their recommendations in the form of statutes, there should be changes only if there is unidirectional and unjust approach. Three-fourth of the functioning of state-aided universities is similar. But there should be some space to contain the unique features and diversity of each university that helps its growth."
