Tathagata Roy, Tripura governor said, a group of students were falling prey to some radical beliefs as they were misguided by some anti-national forces, which are on the attempt to break the national unity and stressed that only with proper education the veil of such ignorance can lifted.
"There are always some such cases. What do you do about them? In the middle of the Second World War, there were people in England who supported Nazism. They went to jail. I would say that these people also should be sent to jail or since they are of very tender age, they ought be educated properly. They are misguided. They do not know the first thing about the country or about the centrifugal forces that are trying to split the country," he said on the event book launch.
He dismissed the 'Azadi' slogans raised by the students of Jadavpur University and said that they were completely unimportant. A former BJP WB unit president said that these students are completely ignorant to the essence of integrity let alone knowing about the integrity.
"A few students here and there were shouting slogans. It is of no importance. I took no notice of it," said Roy.
"These students are totally ignorant about the essence of the country, the way this country has stayed together in spite of so many centrifugal forces working against it. They are young boys and girls who are misguided by some cheap sloganeering," he added.
