The hill-based tribal students’ organisations encompassing the federating units of the three students’ apex bodies laud the Manipur Tribal Forum Delhi (MTFD) leaders and protesters for their sacrifices and unflinching support in the effort to achieve the desired goal of the tribals, the union said.
Overall IMR in Gujarat is 36 (2013), slightly better than the national average of 40, but way behind Kerala’s 12. IMR among the tribal population of Gujarat, based on 2005 figures, is 86, much much worse than Kerala’s!
Dear Jisha, I never knew you, nor did you know me.
You were probably a “usual” student, pursuing your studies, dreaming of a better future for yourself and your country. You were probably someone like Rohith Vemula, who dreamed of stars and skies. I learnt that you were a Law student, but I regret to tell you that the Law of this country fails us miserably.

I saw RohitVemula in dasan, I saw Omar Khalid, IromSharmila, and many of the Kashmiris and all oppressed people in the country in place of ‘dasan’. it’ll be confusing to people who don’t care about humanity and self-obsessed, they think that’s abrupt and brutal climax, I would like to say its shouting in very loud and clear voice which will make sensations in our minds and ask us to get up and stand up for upholding our rights and fight with the oppressed until justice is served. To me, an off-day game is not a mere movie but a piece of artwork that keeps talking and shouting and never stops at all.
On 14th April 2016, Koonal Duggal, a Dalit PhD scholar was harassed and manhandled by security guards on orders from the Proctor Prakash Kona during Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations, organized by EFLU students and SC/ST non-teaching employees’ association. Security guards grabbed Koonal after he completed his speech and attempted to remove him from the premises, claiming that the Proctor had given specific orders to ‘restrict’ Koonal’s entry to the campus. Koonal and the students who intervened in the matter were not given any reason as to why he was being evicted. The Chief Security Officer claimed that he had a copy of the order signed by the Proctor but refused to produce a copy of the same.

Obviously, Winston Churchill was a racist who is on record for saying, “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion”. Churchill hated the Indian politicians of his time with an even greater passion.
