Guwahati, May 27: Environment minister Jairam Ramesh, who recently stirred up a controversy for his comment on IITs and IIMs, today appeared relieved at the 13th convocation of IIT, Guwahati saying he was ‘half expecting' a black flag demonstration.

“I had a civilised entry into IIT, Guwahati today. I had half expected a black flag demonstration,” Ramesh said at the beginning of his convocation address.

“I am grateful for the faculty not giving vent to their feelings,” Ramesh said, referring to the student protest at TISS, Mumbai when he had gone there to address its convocation on May 11.

Ramesh, on May 23, had kicked up a storm claiming that the faculties at the IITs and IIMs were not world class, but the students were. PTI
