Hyderabad: The name of Osmania University is counted among the oldest universities in the country. It is now reported that the university has reportedly denied permission to former Congress national president Rahul Gandhi to visit the campus for "apolitical" visits. Although nothing has been officially said about it yet, but the alleged decision has created a new political controversy in Telangana.
According to media reports, the university has not informed the organizers of the event in writing about the alleged decision of the executive committee. At the same time, Congress has attacked the state government of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) regarding this. At the same time, some students have moved the High Court to order the university for Rahul's visit. Congress leaders on Sunday said they had sought permission for the event on April 23 and were told that the event would be "apolitical".
According to the report, an official has informed that from the year 2017, the Executive Council had adopted a resolution, in which non-academic activities including political meetings were banned in the campus. The official said such a proposal was adopted in June 2017. He said that a year ago, the High Court had ordered the state government not to allow political and public meetings in the university campus. Actually, during that time the petition was filed due to the continuous problem regarding political activities.
