"It is expected of the VCs and principals to maintain academic ambience in the premises of universities and colleges so that students are not influenced by any propaganda or anti-social elements," Adityanath said in his letter.

should be take care of," he said, suggesting installation of CCTV cameras in campuses.

disciplinary action should be initiated against those involved in such activities.

"Initiatives of state and Centre like Stand up India, Start up India, Clean India, Digital India should be briefed
to students. Points related to national unity and integrity should be included in the syllabus and students should be told about moral values," he said.
