Campaign against individual malicious design to smear members of Visva-Bharati Parivar
The Visva-Bharati Parivar condemns the smear campaign that has recently been launched against Ms. Bodhirupa Sinha, Adhyaksha (Principal), Patha Bhavana by Prof. Sudipta Bhattacharya of the Department of Economics and Politics, Visva-Bharati.
A certain section of Prof. Bhattacharya’s supporters went to the extent of publicly maligning Ms. Sinha by putting up posters during an official prayer on 09 January 2021 at Chhatimtala (Visva-Bharati) that jeeringly dubbed her as a “KALANK” (scourge) on Visva-Bharati’s reputation. All this mudslinging has resulted in severe mental agony for Ms. Sinha, as her professional reputation is being baselessly questioned.
Through this online petition, we declare our solidarity with Ms. Sinha and her family. We sincerely hope that this is the last time that a teacher associated with an institution as hallowed as Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s Visva-Bharati is slandered so brutally by a colleague, using such deplorable means.
