Singh, back in 2016 also kicked up a controversy during the sedition row at JNU. It was alleged that she called Dalits and Muslims “anti-nationals”. After being reported in media, she defended herself by saying that she was quoted out of context. The National Commission for Scheduled Castes had sent a show-cause notice to JNU.
Singh is also the member secretary of JNU Ethics Review Board.
