Kochi: The issue of suicide by Hyderabad University scholar Rohith Vemula will figure prominently in the two-day national executive meeting of Congress' student wing NSUI, beginning at Angamaly on Tuesday and to be addressed by Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.

The venue of the meeting, which would be attended by NSUI national office bearers and state presidents, has been named as 'Rohith Vemula Nagar'.

The conclave will be chaired by NSUI President Roji M John while Gandhi, who supported the students' protest over Vemula's death in Hyderabad recently, would address the meeting on Wednesday.

"It will also be attended by several national and state-level Congress leaders. Activists from FTII-Pune, Ambedkar Students Association, University of Hyderabad shall also join the conclave to talk about their revolutionary journey against the government," John told reporters here.

He said: "The main agenda of the meeting will be to come up with a plan of action to fight the atrocities faced by students belonging to marginalised sections across the country so that another Rohith Vemula is not forced to give up his life."
