The Union government has stated that it would consider the grievances aired by states and organisations on the notification banning sale and purchase of cattle for slaughter, he said. “What happened in IIT-Madras? JNU like situation is being brought into an institution of excellence,” Raja, BJP national secretary, said. 

Such a premiere institute should not be allowed to become another JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), he said referring to the issue of raising of ‘anti-national’ slogans there. “The students can participate in agitation outside the campus. There is nothing wrong. I don’t object. But doing things... politicising and handing over an educational institution of excellence to lampoon elements, it is wrong. But it is very wrong to conduct the agitation within the campus,” Raja said. 

He demanded suspension of the Dean (Students) of the IIT who allegedly allowed a section of students to organise the ‘beef fest’ protest inside the campus.
