'Didn't know about political nature of Rahul's visit'

Bhopal: Politics over Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's Madhya Pradesh visit has begun heating up with the Madhya Pradesh Higher Education Department issuing showcause notices to the Vice-Chancellor (VC) and Registrar of the Indore-based Devi Ahilya University over the Congress leader's programme there.


''The notices -- on behalf of Higher Education Minister Laxmikant Sharma -- ask VC Ajit Singh Sehrawat and Registrar R D Musalgaonkar as to how they granted permission at their level for organising the programme,'' a government spokesman confirmed to UNI.


On Tuesday -- the last day of his two-day sojourn to this state -- Mr Gandhi interacted with students in the varsity auditorium. During his visit, the youthful leader also spoke to hundreds of students at academic institutions in Gwalior, Sagar, Jabalpur and Bhopal and encouraged them to enter the political arena.


The state's ruling BJP leaders alleged that Mr Gandhi -- who is visiting different parts of the country vis-a-vis organisational polls of the National Students' Union of India and Youth Congress -- was indulging in ''campus politics.'' Sans naming anyone, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, ''educational institutions' premises ought to be kept free from politics.''


Sagar MP Bhupendra Singh, who alleged that Mr Gandhi's programme in Dr Harisingh Gour Central University was inspired by politics alone, even shot off a letter to the varsity administration seeking permission to organise a similar programme.


''This is not the first time academic premises are being used for political interests. Many Congress and BJP leaders have done so earlier. However, Mr Gandhi's view -- that youths should enter active politics -- is good,'' Communist Party of India (Marxist) state Secy Badal Saroj told UNI.
