Thiruvananthapuram : An accidental lapse has been exaggerated to unleash distorted news campaign against me; the mistake in thesis shall be corrected when it publishes as a book, said Chairperson of the Youth Commission Chintha Jerome at a press conference, adding that, she was thankful to those who pointed out mistake in her research paper.
Not a single line in the thesis has been lifted from anywhere. It had been reviewed several times. Even so there has been error. What followed is, personal attack on that count. No consideration was accorded to me as evem a woman. I accept the criticism with open mind, said Chintha.
Do not please call a painstaking work as stolen stuff. It is but a human error caused by oversight. If there be attempt to use to undo social service done for years, I shall face it with a chuckle, said Chintha.
Chinta Jerome's subject for PhD s was : “The ideological foundation of Malayalam commercial cinema in the neo-liberal times”. She completed her research in English literature and obtained doctorate in 2021. It is a statement from that thesis that has become centre of the storm.
