Kozhikode: Calicut varsity research students have launched an indefinite 24-hour strike under the aegis of AKRSA against the alleged authoritarian campus reign of the VC. The ‘White Rose II’ protest draws academic inspiration from the legendary ‘White Rose’ anti-Nazi movement against Hitler in Munich University during 1942-43 led by siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl. Speaking on behalf of the striking research scholars, S Karthika says that their research papers are kept in abeyance on grounds of lacking ‘impact factor’. They question the propriety of a VC with solely a background in Botany to sit in academic judgment over theses in arts and other sciences.
