IIT-Kgp student refuses to accept degree from PM

Anna Hazare
Kharagpur, Aug 22: It has been evident that 74-year old Anna Hazare's passion and determination over a stronger anti-corruption bill has gripped the students of India's top institutions. The students of IIT- Kharagpur are showing their protest against the government in their own ways. One of the students of IIT-Kharagpur refused to accept his degree from Manmohan Singh while another aims to wear an Anna cap at the convocation where the Prime Minister is the chief guest.

Shashi Shekhar, a civil engineering student, has decided not to accept his M Tech degree from the Prime Minister as a mark of protest. According to him, Singh is not in favour of a strong Lokpal.

"I will not accept my degree from the Prime Minister. I will accept it from someone who supports the Jan Lokpal Bill," says Shashi Shekhar. Another student and M Tech in Electronics, Chandra Kumar Patel, has chosen to wear an Anna cap instead of the traditional convocation cap when he goes to accept his degree from the Prime Minister. A group of IIT Kharagpur students are also sitting on fast in support of Hazare.
