  • KMSS stage protest in Biswanath, Goalpara and Bongaingaon against naming colleges after Deen Dayal Upadhyaya
10-09-2017 | Pratidin Bureau. |

With the BJP and its government dismissing any possibility of withdrawing its decision to name 12 new colleges in the state after RSS ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya, more and more voices are being raised in the state against it.  The latest voice of dissent has come from the activists of Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) and Satra Mukti Sangram Samiti (SMSS). Today KMSS and SMSS defaced the name board of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidyalaya located in Biswanath, Goalpara and Bongaingaon and renamed them after eminent personalities of Assam.

A faction of KMSS and SMSS today defaced the name board of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidyalaya at Amjonga (Goalpara) and renamed it as Bishnuprashad Rabha Adarsha Mahavidyalaya. Another team of KMSS and SMSS today defaced the name board of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidyalaya at Bihali (Biswanath). They said, “There were many eminent persons who had contributed immensely towards Assam’s development in various fields like education, culture, science, administration and so on.” Alleging Upadhyaya as a mantra-guru of the RSS, the group renamed the college as Chabilal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidyalaya.

On the other hand, at Tulungia (Bongaigaon), a group of KMSS and SMSS today defaced the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Adarsha Mahavidyalaya and renamed it as noted Assamese litterateur, historian and activist, Ambika Charan Choudhury. “This was just a symbolic protest, in the days to come we will intensify our protest against such establishments,” said a protester.
