The majority of pupils and parents claim that this is not a one-off incident and that sanitary conditions have been appalling for a number of years.

The private university, OP Jindal Global University (JGU), has written to students and their parents to reassure them that it treats food preparation with “extreme seriousness” in response to the widespread distribution of a video showing a worker stamping on what appears to be a jar of potatoes in the mess of JGU.

In a note dated August 28, the registrar stated that they had treated a matter involving the preparation of food by a food service firm very seriously. They have made sure that no JGU students or employees will consume the food material. Also, they have immediately issued a show-cause notice to the company’s CEO, requesting a formal justification and assurances regarding this situation.
