ANI editor, Smita Prakash was on the receiving end of online backlash after in a tweet she questioned people from poverty hit families for choosing degrees in language courses in Jawaharlal Nehru University.

In a two tweet post, Ms Prakash wrote, “Some fascinating student profiles from JNU in today’s paper. Wondering why a youth from Sasaram whose father earns 6000 a month want to get a masters degree in Russian which has hardly any job opportunities. Not demeaning thirst for education, just genuine curiosity.”

She further added, “Or a youth from Rajasthan whose family is battling agrarian distress want to study Spanish. Will 3 years and a bachelors degree in Spanish land him a job? Or youths from poverty hit families in UP spending 3 years studying Pashto and German.”

Twitter user Shahnawaz, in response, shared his personal story.

IAS Naveen Kuimar wrote “If complete nonsense was ever spoken. Personally know a dalit boy, from Prayagraj UP, studied Korean at JNU and now working at Microsoft. But according to you he must not dream coz dreaming is for big town folks. Great!”
