Clashes in CUSAT Due to External Interference: CUSAT VC R.Sasidharan

“The recent clashes in the Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) campus were incited by external forces”, said CUSAT Vice Chancellor Dr. R Sasidharan.

CUSAT is a science and technology University giving importance to research and higher education and enjoying national and international acclaim. The acceptance of the students of this University worldwide and the expanding network of CUSAT collaborations with major Universities and institutes globally are examples for this.

“It has to be understood that the clashes and disturbances occurred at a time when the University has issued notification for admission to its courses are clearly the result of actions by external forces to bring down the reputation of the University before the society”, he said.

The almost regular appearance of such disturbances in the campus prior to the admission time underlines the fact that it is the result of an intentional effort of malicious external forces to dissuade students from seeking admission in CUSAT. CUSAT enjoys the support of the government and students. The Vice Chancellor said that the external interferences aimed at destroying the University’s interests would be dealt with strongly.
