Gadchiroli Jan. 20 (District Correspondent) Strongly opposing the Gondwana University senate’s recent decision of naming the University Hall after Dattaji Didolkar, various social and political organizations in the district have demanded to immediately withdraw this decision.
The workers also demanded that the Vice Chancellor of the university Dr. Prashant Bokare who has been persistently working against the principles of the constitution and enforcing RSS ideology in the institution should be immediately ousted from his post and the appointments of all the senate members appointed by the Governor be cancelled.
A meeting of the prominent workers of different organizations was held at Sanvidhan Sabhagriha here on Thursday evening and the said decision was condemned terming it an insult of the people of Gadchiroli and also of those tribal revolutionaries and heroes who sacrificed their lives for the country.
What contribution Didolkar has in the formation of Gondwana University and educational field of the Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts, asked the agitated workers. This decision is nothing but a ploy of enforcing the ideology of RSS on the people and students, they said.
There are number of revolutionaries and academicians in the two districts under University’s area including Veer Baburao Shedmake, Narayansingh Uike, Baburao Madavi, G. N. Munghate, Rameshchandra Munghate but the senate members systematically ignored them and enforced the name of a person who has no any contribution in the district, pointed out the workers further.
After elaborate discussion, the workers finally decided to launch an agitation against the university and called upon the likeminded parties and people to participate in this agitation. Those prominently present in the meeting were Ms. Kusum Alam, noted poetess and tribal leader, Rohidas Raut of Republican Party, Raj Bansod of BRSP, Vinod Madavi of Adiwasi Yuwa Parishad, Kunal Kowe of Adiwasi Yuwa Ekta Manch, Nagsen Khobragade of Social Education Movement, Hansraj Undirwade, Pradeep Bhaisare, Pratik Barsinge and many others.
