Panaji, Jan 23: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi's visit to the Goa university has sparked off a row.
Rahul Gandhi, who was in the state on Tuesday, Jan 19, addressed meetings of the Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) on the campus and later of the Youth Congress members and state Congress unit officials.
Taking objection to this, the opposition Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) demanded the registrar Mohan Sangodkar's resignation for allowing political meets to take place on the campus.
Even though the registrar has taken responsibility for allowing the Congress leader to hold the three meetings, the university authorities claim that the Youth Congress office bearers had not informed them about the political nature of Gandhi's visit.
With the issue intensifying over the past few days, Goa Governor S S Sidhu stepped in and has reportedly sought a 'factual report' from vice-chancellor Dilip Deobagkar.
