BHU panel recommends removing the name of Rajiv Gandhi from its south campus, Congress threatens to protest

The campus is located in Mirzapur district is called 'Rajiv Gandhi South Campus Barkachha'. It was established in 2006.

The Banaras Hindu University just faced the ire of the “Liberals” when the students of Dharma Vigyan department protested against a Muslim professor teaching them about Dharma. It seems like BHU is all set to ruffle some feathers yet again with the BHU panel recommending that the name of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi be removed from the south campus of the university.

The BHU panel has contended that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi made no contribution to the educational institute, and this, his name should be removed.

The BHU court, which is an advisory body of the university, has sent its proposal to the the academic council, the university’s decision-making body.

Chancellor Giridhar Malviya, a retired judge of the Allahabad High Court, chaired the meeting of the court held earlier this week.

He reportedly confirmed that Justice Malviya said, “The members of the court said that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi never visited BHU. Former Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh had named the south campus of BHU after former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.”

He also confirmed that the proposal has been sent to the academic council and has the assent of all the members of the court.

Congress has not taken kindly to the move. India Today reports that Congress leader Ajay Rai has asserted that his party would vehemently oppose any move to rename Banaras Hindu University (BHU)’s Rajiv Gandhi South campus in Mirzapur’s Barkachha.
