Smriti Irani a 'mediocre' actor, Modi should sack her: UoM professor

 A professor at the University of Mysore has called Union Human Resources Development Minister Smriti Irani a “low-level actor” who did not deserve to be the HRD minister.

Delivering a talk during ‘Vycharika Kidi’, a programme to commemorate the death of PhD scholar V Rohith, and a session on ‘Condition of dalit, backward, minority students in universities’ organised by Dalit Vidyarthi Okkutta here on Thursday, journalism professor B P Mahesh Chandra Guru said, “If Modi has guts, let him remove Smriti Irani and Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya from his Cabinet. Irani, Dattatreya and Hyderabad Central University Vice-Chancellor P Appa Rao should be put behind the bars.”

Describing the NDA government as the “National Destruction Alliance”, Guru said Modi was making the country weak and trying to make Indians “slaves” of foreign nations by inviting them to invest in the country. “Modi became the PM because of our foolishness. We need a self-respecting PM,” he said.

He went on, “Being a VC, I don’t want to loot money. I don’t have any children to make money. Only the worst kind of looters can become VCs. Kuvempu developed the University of Mysore but ‘Kuvempu Bhajan Mandali’ is controlling it.”

At the same event, Professor K S Bhagawan called Rohith’s death a “premeditated murder”. “Rohith is among the few people who became popular at young age. Mahatma Gandhi liberated the country from the British, but Periyar liberated Indians from Brahmanism. To know more about Gandhi and his thoughts, one should read the book ‘What Mr Gandhi and Congress have done to untouchables,” he said.

He went on, “We need Bhima Rajya instead of Rama Rajya. Rama has not contributed anything towards the poor people or farmers. He donated gold coins to priests during his coronation. Rama also suspected his wife Sita’s conduct, twice. During his rule, there were no property rights for women. So, the nation needs leaders like Buddha, Basavanna and Ambedkar.”
