Yesterday, social media went into a tizzy when rumours started doing the rounds that the HRD Ministry offered Subramanian Swamy the post of Vice Chancellor of the influential Jawarharlal Nehru University. Yes, more on that bit of news here.

The BJP leader did not really clear the air regarding the rumours, but chose to remain ambiguous about it. He tweeted, "Media is on fire that I have been offered the JNU VC post. No formal offer nor will there be if the Govt cannot meet my pre-conditions." So there are pre-conditions then?
But Swamy further added fuel to the rumours today with this tweet:
I think JNU needs an Anti Narcotics Bureau campus branch office to raid dorms and arrest Naxals, jehadis and Elis. BSF camp also— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) September 24, 2015
So has the Harvard-educated leader really been offered the post that he is already tweeting about the things that he 'thinks' are required at the JNU? Wonder what JNU students are thinking about Swamy's suggested course of action.
Here are some reactions to his post:
