The vice chancellor of Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur, has sparked a controversy with a piece of insane advice for his students. VC  Raja Ram Yadav has apparently asked students to commit murder if they get into a fight. "If you’re a student of this University (Purvanchal University), never come crying to me. If you ever get into a fight, beat them, if possible murder them, we’ll take care of it later," he said while addressing students at a seminar in the University in Ghazipur.

His speech has landed him in a hot water with people now demanding action against him. "A Vice-Chancellor of Purvanchal University advising students to beat up or even Murder. This is the Kind of Education implanted in our Universities Today," a social media user said.

"VC of Purvanchal University is asking students to commit violence, even murder, to settle quarrels. Same VC embraced CM Yogi's 'suggestion' to organise Ram Kathas on the campus to teach students 'sanskar'. Will any channel identify him as 'Tukde Tukde Gang' or 'Urban Sanghi'? (sic)" Kavita Krishnan, an activist with the All India Progressive Women’s Association, tweeted.

"Social engineering. Abetting offences including heinous crime. He ought to be immediately suspended and served show cause notice to explain why he should not be removed from the post (sic)," reads a tweet on microblogging site.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh slammed Raja Ram Yadav for his statement and said that the VC of such mentality has no right to stay in his position. "It was wrong, he can’t make such comments. He should teach students the way of peace but he’s doing ‘gunda raj’, VC of such mentality has no right to stay in his position. I hope Deputy CM will take appropriate action," Singh was quoted as saying by ANI.
