NEW DELHI: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today demanded that the JNU should be shut down for four months after the final examinations in May for "fumigating" the hostels by rejecting students who do not swear allegiance to the Indian Constitution.

"But those having proven record of being jihadis, Naxalites and LTTE terrorists must be expelled from the university," he said in a statement.

Mr Swamy also said those students who have not graduated from bachelor's courses and those who have not got their master's degrees in three years should be expelled.

He said JNU is hundred per cent financed by government and is accountable to Parliament and CAG.

Academic freedom like all freedoms in a democracy is subject to reasonable restrictions and the government is entitled to enforce restrictions, he said.
