Experts believe that the issue of the Lucknow University Vice Chancellor's (VC) denial to Anna Hazare's meeting on the campus would surely lead to a big controversy after teachers made serious accusations saying that the withdrawal of permission has been taken under political pressure.
Demanding a clarification from VC Prof. MK Mishra on receiving instructions from the Raj Bhawan or the state government, Lucknow University Teachers Association (LUTA) secretary RB Singh said that if that was the case then it means that Congress didn’t want that meeting to be conducted in the university campus.
Accusing Congress leaders of blocking Anna's anti-corruption campaign by issuing unnecessary allegations against his team, he added, “And if the pressure is coming from the state government, it means that BSP is opposed to Anna. However, the possibility of state government's denial seems less because chief minister Mayawati has already made it clear that she supports Anna”.
Though the university had earlier granted permission to conduct an interactive session of students and teachers with Anna but later on the proposal was withdrawn saying that the whole thing might lead to a troubling situation.
At the same time, the Lucknow Police Chief, DK Thakur said that there were no adverse intelligence reports and it has no objection on teachers organizing the function.
