Students and alumni have alleged that this is the latest attempt of the director general K.G. Suresh, who is associated with the Sangh, to promote the Hindutva agenda in the institute.
As part of project Hindutva, Shome Basu documents how badly cows are treated and monetised despite being considered the holiest among all animals.
While demonetisation and the resultant hardships have tarnished the reputation of the BJP-led central government, the Samajwadi Party’s record of criminalised politics may become a roadblock for it.
The Hindutva ideology propagated by the organisation, represents a unitary vision of politics and development, which can be more easily aligned with the scientific rather than humanistic mode of thinking.
