Union minister Athawale heckled during speech by protesters 15.1.2018 General News
A group of Dalit activists tried to disrupt a speech by Union Minister of State for Social Justice Ramdas Athawale here last evening, protesting erection of a separate stage by his party workers. Police detained around 130 protesters. Athawale was speaking at the varsity campus to mark anniversary of the 'name-expansion' of Marathwada University. In the 1990s, following an intense agitation by Dalits, the state government expanded the varsity's name as Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University.
