Prakash Ambedkar was denied entry into University of Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Prakash Ambedkar, grandson of BR Ambedkar, Rohith Vemula’s family member and a few others were denied entry into the University of Hyderabad to attend the 125th birth anniversary celebration.  

At the event, organised by Ambedkar Students Association, several students including Rohith Vemula’s mother Radhika Vemula were seen gathering outside the UoH main gate.

University officials said they were not allowed entry as they were outsiders.

On March 23, the varsity authorities had decided not to allow any outsider, including mediapersons and politicians, on the campus.

Either they should have been invited or should have some connection. The only connection is grandson of Ambedkar in whose memory this function is organized and relatives of one of the ex students of the University, who is no more. Obviously there is politics and the University has done the right thing to decline permission to these people.
