Pune News: Savitribai Phule Pune University Takes Proactive Steps Towards Reconciliation Amidst Rising Tensions


Pune:  Policenama online – Pune News | Savitribai Phule Pune University is gearing up for a transformative initiative to foster reconciliation and restore harmony following recent disputes between student organisations and political parties. The university administration, in collaboration with the union of students, teachers, and staff, is set to implement comprehensive measures after engaging in discussions with key stakeholders, including the Police Commissioner and the Vice-Chancellor.(Pune News)

The catalyst for these deliberations was a recent clash between activists from two prominent organisations, namely the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and the Student Federation of India. The altercation led to both organisations filing complaints with the police. Subsequently, ABVP reported the presence of a controversial text about Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a university hostel wall. This incident escalated further as the BJP organised a protest march, resulting in a heated argument between BJP workers and members of another organisation.

The escalating tension prompted the Pune Police to impose a curfew on the university premises from November 7 to 21.

Recognising the imperative to uphold academic sanctity, freedom of thought, and a harmonious atmosphere on campus, the university is taking proactive steps to engage with all sections of the university community. Therefore, a crucial meeting with representatives from student organisations is scheduled at the Dnyaneshwar Auditorium in the main building on Saturday at eleven o’clock in the morning. The meeting, which will be attended by a maximum of three to five representatives from each organisation, aims to facilitate constructive dialogue in the presence of the Vice-Chancellor and the Police Commissioner.

In the wake of recent events, the university is emphasising the collective responsibility of all stakeholders in maintaining a conducive environment for education, free expression, and peaceful coexistence.
