MUMBAI: Opposition BJP slammed higher and technical education minister Uday Samant’s decision to hold a ‘Janata Darbar’ in Worli and alleged that the venue has been fixed following instructions from the ‘Yuvraj’ (Aaditya Thackeray) and to gain publicity. BJP MLA Atul Bhatkhalkar demanded that the Worli meeting be cancelled, and instead be held in a varsity hall. Shiv Sena MLA Aaditya represents Worli assembly constituency.
The higher education directorate had written to Mumbai and SNDT universities to make arrangements and bear the cost of the Janata Darbar scheduled on February 22 in Worli, where Samant will meet students, teachers, parents and non-teaching staff to address their grievances.
Alleging that the contractors have already been zeroed in on for the event, Bhatkhalkar said: “The minister has no right to interfere in the internal affairs of the university. If he wants to hear students, parents, teachers and non-teaching staff, he should hold the meeting with the varsity’s permission in its hall.” And when schools and colleges have not been permitted to reopen in Mumbai due to the pandemic, what will Samant achieve by holding this event, he asked. Samant did not respond to TOI’s calls.
