Students in #Kalimpong college have taken strong exception to the rifle totting CRPF jawans setting up being deployed inside their campus.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one of the students said, “TMC hypocrisy is not a new thing in Gorkhaland region, but the deployment of central police forces in educational institution is more than unbelievable… they are creating an atmosphere of terror and fear among the students.”
Kalimpong college is going on a poll for students representative on the 14th of December, but students we talked to said, “West Bengal govt. has imposed AFSPA like situation in the Kalimpong college by imposing para-military force inside the Kalimpong college campus. In India none of the Educational Institution in the peaceful region has seen such an autocratic rule of the state.”
Certain female students were apprehensive about their own safety and said, “CRPF jawans have notorious reputation in our hills, if they misconduct with our female students, who will be answerable, college authority or WB Govt?” In 2014 an SSB jawan ahd molested a school student near Ghoom, leading to widespread student protest in the region.
We hope that politicians and all the hill based political parties including Hill TMC leaders will raise their voice against this administrative overreach by West Bengal government and tactic support of Central government in allowing such misuse of central security forces.
