Vice-Chancellor of Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur, Raja Ram Yadav while addressing students at an event suggested them to murder the person they ever get into an argument with and do not come to him weeping.

In a video viral of his speech given on Friday at the Satyadev Degree College in Ghazipur district, VC Professor Raja Ram Yadav can be seen saying, “Agar tum Purvanchal Vishwavidyalay ke chhatra ho to kisi se jhagra karke mere samne rotey huey mat ana. Haan, agar peetke ya fir hatya karke ayeh toh main dekh lunga (If you are a student of Purvanchal University, never come to me weeping after a fight. But if you come to me after beating or even killing someone, I’ll take care of it).”

He even said, “Yuva Chhatra wahi hota hai jo parvat ki chattano me pair maarta hai to paani ki dhaar nikalti hai… Usi ko chhatra kahte hain… Chhatra apne jeevan me sankalp leta hai usko apni aakho se sankalp ko poora karta hai… Usi ko Purvanchal Vishwavidyalaya ka chhatra kahte hain (young student is the one who brings out water from rock just by a kick. Students of the Purvanchal university when pledge something, they complete it with their eyes).”

After he completed these sentences, people can be heard saying "waah, waah (bravado! bravado!). There are also sound of people clapping in support of what the vice-chancellor said.

Meanwhile, his speech gained a lot of criticism from various political parties.

According to media reports, Samajwadi Party spokesperson Manoj Rai Dhupchandi said, “This is a highly objectionable comment. Vice-chancellor motivates students to do well in education. But Purvanchal University VC is motivating them to get into hooliganism. This is very disappointing. Action should be taken against the vice chancellor.”
