The newly appointed chief Proctor in BHU , Royona Singh is the first woman to hold the post and declared that there will be no restrictions on dress code, alcohol for girls or ban on non vegetarian food in the messes.
She said, “I was born in Europe. I frequently travel to Europe and Canada. Putting a dressing restriction on girls would be like imposing it on myself. You start your day at 6 am and end at 10.30 pm, and if you still can’t wear what you feel comfortable in, then it is a shame in this era.”
Royona Singh a professor of Anatomy was raised in French town of Royan for 9 years in 1980’s .
“As far as drinking is concerned, all girls here are above 18, why should we even impose such a thought on them?” she asked.
“As far as I know, in my medical hostel, the diet is vegetarian only if a majority of the girls prefer that . For others, they still have their non-veg on particular days,” Singh told
“We have barricading done to ensure bikes don’t move fast. We are also cutting branches and twigs on trees to accommodate lights,” Singh said.
“As far as female issues are concerned, I would be more sensitive. And women would be more comfortable sharing things with a female,” she said.
