West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to direct the Ministry of Education to immediately withdraw its revised guidelines which stipulated state-aided universities to get prior consent from the ministry for holding global conferences.

Publicly-funded universities will have to get the prior consent of the ministry if they want to hold online global conferences on issues pertaining to the security of the country or matters directly "related to India's internal matters", the ministry said on January 15.

Banerjee said the revised guidelines have put several restrictions in respect of holding online/virtual international conferences/seminars/training even for state-aided universities.
