New Delhi, 17 Nov 2020: BJP National General Secretary CT Ravi suggested that the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) should be renamed after Swami Vivekananda.


Taking it to Twitter former Karnataka minister CT Ravi said, ’It is Swami Vivekananda who stood for the ’Idea of Bharat’. His philosophy & values signify the ’Strength of Bharat’. It is only right that Jawaharlal Nehru University be renamed as Swami Vivekananda University. Life of Bharat’s patriotic Saint will inspire generations to come’.


This suggestion comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the statue of Swami Vivekananda in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus in New Delhi via video conferencing last week.


Meanwhile, JNU is set to hold its fourth annual convocation on November 18 focused only on conferring PhD degrees.


JNU Rector Satish Chandra Garkoti said in a release that over 600 PhD degrees will be conferred during the convocation. ’Over 600 PhD degrees will be conferred on this day. The number is unprecedented considering the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. This is the third consecutive year that the convocation is being organized which is focused only on conferring the PhD degrees,’ he said.


President Ram Nath Kovind will be the chief guest at the function and Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank will be the guest of honour.
