BJP's move to set up university named after Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh a pretence: SP chief

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh): Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said that BJP's move to build a new university named after former Lok Sabha Member of Parliament Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh was a pretence. Yadav said the BJP-led central government disrespected Pratap by declaring the Gurukul Vishwavidhyalaya created by him as a fake university.
"It is a pretence of the BJP to set up a new university named after Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh, who was opposed to communalism and narrow politics and had enabled seizure of deposits of BJP's predecessors. BJP government disrespected him by declaring the Gurukul Vishwavidhyalaya made by him in Vrindavan as a fake university," Yadav said in a tweet.
आजीवन साम्प्रदायिकता और संकीर्ण राजनीति के विरोधी रहे व भाजपा के पूर्वगामियों की ज़मानत ज़ब्त कराने वाले राजा महेन्द्र प्रताप सिंह जी के नाम पर नया विश्वविद्यालय बनाना भाजपाई ढोंग है जबकि उनके बनाए गुरुकुल विवि. वृंदावन को भाजपा सरकार ने नक़ली विवि घोषित करके उनका अपमान किया है।— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) September 14, 2021
