HRD Ministry Writes 5 Letters To Hyderabad University

The Ministry of Human Resource Development wrote five letters to the Hyderabad University regarding the August 17, 2015 letter written by Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya. The ministry had sent its first letter on September 3, 2015 to the University, and reminders were later sent on September 24, October 6, October 20 and November 19. Dattatreya had written a letter to HRD minister Smriti Irani after a clash between two student groups in the campus in which an ABVP leader Susheel Kumar was attacked. Rohith Vemula, a Dalit PhD scholar, who committed suicide on Sunday night, was among the five research scholars who were suspended by the university in August last year over the alleged assault case. They were also kept out of the hostel. The issue took a political turn with allegations that the extreme step taken by Rohith was a result of discrimination against dalit students at the behest of Dattatreya, following his letter to Irani, seeking action against their “anti-national acts”. Rohith was found hanging at the Central University’s hostel room in the campus on Sunday, triggering protests from fellow students.
