Hyderabad: Two UoH students have been allegedly denied hall tickets for the PhD entrance exam by the English and Foreign Languages University. The two students are members of the Ambedkar Students Association at the UoH and are doing their MPhil in the Centre for Translation Studies. They had applied for PhD in Translation Studies and were waiting for the hall tickets for the entrance exam on February 25. After they were unable to download the hall tickets online on Friday, the students said they went to the Eflu administration to inquire.

They claimed that EFLU proctor Prakash Kona told them the reason was their participation in protests following the suicide of UoH research scholar Rohith Vemula. They alleged that he wanted them to write a letter disassociating themselves from the protest.

 

In 2016, another student, Jalees Kodur, was denied a hall ticket for participating in a beef festival on the EFLU campus. Elsewhere, social activists criticised the Centre and the AP governments on the row over the caste of Rohith Vemula. Former chief secretary Kaki Madhava Rao said that by trying to declaring Rohith as a BC, the Centre would be “killing him one more time.”  He said only revenue officials could decide on the caste of any individual, but the governments seemed to have forgotten this. Mallepalli Lakshmaiah slammed governments for turning the Rohith suicide issue to one of caste determination.
