Instead of calling for a rethink on the four-year employment model in the armed forces, the JD(U) should complete the degree program in three years, according to Jaiswal.Responding to Jaiswals remark, JD(U) parliamentary board chairman and MLC Upendra Kushwaha said that the administrative concerns of universities are not under the jurisdiction of the state government.According to him, the state government should not interfere in the internal affairs of the universities because it is the responsibility of the vice-chancellor.Neeraj Kumar, a former minister and JD(U) chief spokesman, issued an indignant statement enumerating the steps taken to reorient the academic calendar.
