New Delhi: There is no proposal for changing the name of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said on Monday. Also, BJP General Secretary C T Ravi had proposed last year a name change of the JNU after Swami Vivekananda.

No Proposal For JNU Name Change

"No sir," Mr Nishank said in response to a question in the Lok Sabha whether the Government had any proposal for changing the name of the university in Delhi.

In November, Mr Ravi had tweeted: "It is Swami Vivekananda who stood for the "Idea of Bharat". Also, His philosophy and values signify the "Strength of Bharat".
