“The only freedoms they care about giving us are the ones you can exercise in a cell... numbers are easier to manage when they don’t have their own liberty...”

-Harry Wade, expelled from university engineering program for taking a principled stand.

“When you become a number — and we don’t have to look that far back to find out what happens when we treated people as numbers — I think we’re already there, and that’s the tragedy.” 2/3

“I’m inviting people to wake up, and start using your conscience again, and start asking relevant questions, simple as, if your vaccine works, who is in danger? And if your vaccine doesn’t work, why do I need it?” 3/3

This decision of the Tamilnadu government is in violation of the #UGC guidelines issued originally on 29th April & Revised in July. In the UGC guidelines it is very clear that this provision for mark calculation is only for CURRENT academic session. /1
As of now the legal status of the announcement of the TN government must be scrutinized with the guidelines of #UGC. As the matter of State Vs UGC is pending with the supreme court, this announcement will be valid only if the Top court rules in favor of states (DMA). /2
In this scenario, as the announcement of TN govt violates the guidelines, UGC will not approve this or allow this procedure to be extended for arrear exams / back logs. The outcome of the judgement in the SC will decide the future course. /n #StudentLivesMatter

Before the last hearing on case against UGC in Supreme Court, I elucidated that court would scrutiny the legality of the UGC guidelines, with respect to disaster / epidemic act of the States. Hon`ble judges made the same observation in the last hearing. #StudentsLivesMatters /1
Court didn`t engage the petitions that were filed based on mercy. Courts can only interfere if there is a violation of law. The petition of Maha & Delhi govt is the only valid & pivotal petition. Tamilnadu govt should have impleaded in the case too. #StudentsInSCForJustice /2
Courts can only decide based on the legal frame work of the constitution. Tomorrow`s hearing gains much importance because it would address a very salient crisis, whether States can overrule the command of the statutory body like #UGC . #studentsAgainstUGCGuidelines /3

@AUThackeray Dear Sir, I write this message to you as a last option on behalf of the Architectural Student Fraternity of Maharashtra.
Despite of the decision passed by @CMOMaharashtra on the cancellation of exams for the final year students, our colleges are forcing us to work.
@AUThackeray, The colleges are forcing us to prepare for our final exams/juries, saying that the universities and respective councils have said to do so & it would be online.
I belong to a reputed Architectural college which comes under @Uni_Mumbai, and this is the scenario!
@AUThackeray, As you would know, that architecture is a course like no other, it requires taking necessary test prints of plotters, stationery requirements, and at times uninterrupted Internet connectivity, which I currently do not possess.
