Kanhaiya not allowed to enter Hyderabad varsity

Hyderabad, March 23 (IANS) JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar was on Wednesday not allowed to enter University of Hyderabad as police sealed off the campus for outsiders amid continuing tension over the return of P. Appa Rao as the vice chancellor.

Kanhaiya Kumar and other student and political leaders accompanying him were stopped by police at the main gate when he arrived in the evening to address protesting students on the campus.

Since the university authorities barred the entry of outsiders, police stopped Kanhaiya’s convoy.

Talking to reporters, the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student leader said a student was not being allowed on the campus. He said such actions by police and the government can’t suppress their voice.

He said the government was not ready to listen to the students. He made it clear that police ‘lathis’ can’t silence their voice.

“Our fight will continue till the dreams of Rohith Vemula, B.R. Ambedkar and Bhagat Singh are realised,” he said, demanding enactment of what he called ‘Rohith legislation’ to ensure social justice on the campuses.

Kanhaiya Kumar raised slogans against caste discrimination, untouchability and for social justice and equality.

He also expressed solidarity with students of Hyderabad University fighting for justice to the family of Rohith, the Dalit research scholar who committed suicide on January 17.

Earlier, the JNU student leader met Rohith’s mother Radhika and consoled her.
