Some documents have also been found by the Hungarian website Direkt36, which has shown that the Chinese bank will give a loan of $ 1.5 billion for this work. Two-thirds of the country’s people have categorically opposed the creation of a Chinese campus.
protests in Hungary
Protests in Hungary Over Chinese University Project: In the Hungarian capital Budapest, thousands of people have taken to the streets to protest. These people have opposed the plan to open a Chinese university campus in the capital. The protesters said that if this happens, the country’s own higher education will be in danger and the influence of the Chinese Communist administration will increase here. The Prime Minister of Hungary’s right-wing government, Viktor Orbán, is considered very close to China.
How much the Hungarian PM likes China can be gauged from the fact that recently Hungary blocked the statement of the European Union, in which China was criticized for Hong Kong. On Saturday, Hungarians marched on the streets against the construction of Fudan University Campus in Budapest, China. People had reached the Parliament. The government is facing criticism from the people.
People want to improve their university
A student named Radix, who joined the protest, said, “Orbán and his (right-wing) Fidesz Portere party are themselves against the communists, but in reality the communists are their friends.” Another student named Patrick said that government funds should not be used for the Fudan University project, instead the money should be used to improve the university in his own country (Fudan University Campus in Budapest). It is estimated that $1.8 billion will be spent to build the campus of the Chinese university.
Chinese bank will give loan
The government is spending more for the Chinese campus than it did in 2019 for the entire higher-education system. Some documents have also been found by the Hungarian website Direkt36, which has shown that the Chinese bank will give a loan of $ 1.5 billion for this work. Two-thirds of the country’s people have categorically opposed the creation of a Chinese campus. Even Budapest Mayor Gargle Carasoni is against it. He said this week that he would name the streets after the victims of Chinese human rights violations.
streets were named
New signboards have also been put up on three streets, namely, Free Hong Kong Road, Dalai Lama Street and Uyghur Shaheed Road. Let us tell you that China has also been accused of genocide of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province. Whereas China rejects any kind of human rights violation (Chinese Univrsity in Hungary). Talking about Fudan University, it is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in China. The work on the campus in Budapest is expected to be finished by 2024.
