SHORT DURATION DISCUSSION ON SITUATION ARISING IN CENTRAL INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION WITH SPECIFIC REFERENCE TO JAWAHARLAL NEHRU UNIVERSITY AND UNIVERSITY OF HYDERABAD
SHRI M.B. RAJESH (PALAKKAD): Madam, we are discussing this important issue at a time when the campuses across the country are boiling in an unprecedented outrage and protest. Tens of thousands of students are coming out on the streets to fight an undeclared emergency imposed by the Government against the universities and campuses. Madam Speaker, two incidents have shaken the conscience of the entire nation. One is a suicide. It is, in fact, an institutional killing of Rohit Vemula, a brilliant student who wanted to become another Carl Sagan. He belonged to Hyderabad Central University.
