Set up a central univ after Narayana Guru: Swamy to Irani
cancel

New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has urged HRD Minister Smriti Irani to establish a central university in Thiruvananthapuram after Dalit icon Sree Narayana Guru.

Sree Narayana Guru is widely revered for his contribution to uplifting the members of Kerala's backward Ezhava caste.

"...A Central University in Trivandrum should be established in his name because he uplifted a most backward community called Ezhava to such heights that today this community has become the most educated community of Kerala," Swami said in a letter to Irani.

Swamy said he had attended a meeting of the Sree Narayana Dharma Sanghom Trust on December 31 last year which was also attended by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

"During the course of the speech, we had committed that for great Guru Sree Narayana, a central university in Trivandrum should be named after him," the letter said.
