JAIPUR: Protests today erupted in Rajasthan University here over a question related to the ideology of BJP in a post graduate-level examination, prompting police to baton charge to disperse the protesting students' group.         

Students affiliated to National Students Union of India (NSUI) were protesting at the varsity gate when police dispersed them by baton charge which allegedly left a few of them injured who were admitted to a hospital.         

At least two students received injuries, students alleged.            

"Mild force was used to disperse the mob and 11 students were held and detained," police said.              The students were protesting against a question related to the ideology of BJP in MA (final year) question paper of Rajasthani Literature last week.  

Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee vice president Archana Sharma condemned the action and met the protesting students at the Gandhi Nagar police station.      

"BJP is using the curriculum to publicise its ideology. The students had been protesting for the last three days but instead of listening to them, the government get the students lathicharged by police," Sharma alleged.
