New Delhi, Jun 6 (PTI) Refuting reports that Ramjas College was planning to adopt the Gurukul-style of teaching, its spokesperson said no such plan was mooted by the college.

Shishir Kumar Jha, a staff council secretary of the college, said only three persons, including the principal and himself, were authorised to issue official statements.

“Gurukul-style teaching will not be adopted in Ramjas College. Such an agenda was never there. The wrong statements issued can be counted as their personal opinion,” he said.

According to reports, the freshers were expected to sing the national anthem every morning and attend yoga classes in the college as a “precautionary” measure to avoid violence on the campus.

In February, the college had witnessed violence between the members of the All India Students Association (AISA) and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) over an invitation sent to JNU students Umer Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on ‘Culture of Protests’.
