Chennai: The views expressed by the authors and the artistes in their articles and creations in Pondicherry University students council magazine is purely theirs and the university administration has absolutely no role in it, the university administration said in a press release.

The magazine, released on Wednesday, contained strong criticism of the Modi-led NDA government which reportedly provoked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other Sangh Parivar organisations.

 

The state president of BJP Puducherry unit, V. Saminathan will  organise a protest in front of the university gate on Monday against the  magazine and the university administration for giving permission to publish a magazine which is intended to defame the Central government.
