New Delhi | Having decided to rename its central library after BR Ambedkar, JNU is now planning to christen the roads at its campus after visionaries including Jawaharlal Nehru and Ram Manohar Lohia.

A decision in this regard was taken last week at a meeting of the varsity’s Executive Council, the statutory decision making body. It has been decided to rename the various roads inside the sprawling campus after certain visionaries such as Ram Manohar Lohia and Jawaharlal Nehru, an EC member said.

The council has given its approval for renaming them but the names are yet to be decided. A panel may be constituted to take a call on the list of visionaries after which the roads will be renamed, he added.

The varsity had recently decided to rename the central library as B R Ambedkar Library following demands from RSS’s student wing ABVP. The ABVP, which is locked in an ideological battle with the Left-backed groups on campus, had in April demanded a statue of the architect of Indian Constitution be installed on the campus.
