After the meeting, Mamata said, “Rabindranath Tagore’s thinking says that real education takes place in the free environment of nature. Everything is not known just by reading books. Practical experience and Mother Nature created a school called Santiniketan. We want students to study here. But, the way they are being deprived is worrying. Ph.D. is not allowed. Canceled even after doing Ph.D. Seven students met me today. All of them have been suspended. There are various forms of oppression, but I don’t see any discussion about them. I think it is our duty to save Visva Bharati regardless of public opinion.” After that, Mamata fired at the Vice-Chancellor of Visva Bharati without naming her. Said, “If anyone thinks to polarize the students, professors or staff by force of power, bulldoze him to commit violence, even if there is not a single person with them, know that I am with them.”
