Rajya Sabha member and RSS ideologue Rakesh Sinha has said that 7 Congress MLAs have called him over phone and expressed their anguish over Kamal Nath for filing FIR on 20 faculty members of Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Mass Communication (MCU).
In almost threatening tone, Sinha said that he (Kamal Nath) is trying to spread terror before going (out of power). Besides 7 Congress MLAs, three others have promised to meet me on the same issue, he added. He also said that dismissal of this government is sure. Replying to a question over former VCs liquor bills paid by the university, Sinha said that inquiry officer should have courtesy to phone him (VC) and asked the matter before putting it in public domain.
Criticising Kamal Nath government Sinha said governments come and go but educationist remain engaged in their work but lodging FIR against them is not the right decision and Kamal Nath should resign for his action. Sinha hit at CM Nath reminding people of his role in Sikh riots. A SIT should be constituted to probe his role in the riots, he said. He also said that Nath is behaving like a monarch and appointed new VC by throwing all rules to winds. VC is appointed by the general council after a search panel suggests some names.
Sinha also raised questions on the three member inquiry committee. “Two of the committee members were Congress spokesperson. One of them, Sandeep Dixit was caught with cash in a train besides one runs a dubious NGO,” said Sinha. Sinha denied the charges leveled against him. He clarified that he came to MCU on deputation from Delhi University and didn’t receive any monitory benefit rather his bills were stopped by the state government and it still owes more than Rs 5 lakh to him.
‘Do dalits have right to do wrong’
Sinha said that Kamal Nath government is anti-Sikh and anti-dalit. Five of the teachers mentioned in FIR belong to dalit community, four are from SC communities while belong to ST community- therefore the Congress government is anti-dalit. He, however, evaded the question when asked if dalits have all the right to do wrong.
