There has been discrimination against the Dalits for decades

Mr Modi remains a popular leader. Modi and Amit Shah know how to win elections

The BJP was thinking of getting 150 seats (in Gujarat) - that was the hype that was created. So this was a setback, though not a disaster. After 22 years the BJP is still in majority

Bidyut Chakrabarty (Professor)

BJP is quite stable in Gujarat. Gujarat is a prestige fight so the BJP wants to leave no stone unturned

Hardik Patel is just 24 years old. He is young, mercurial and has a long way to go.

I don’t know if my name features among the shortlisted candidates for DU V-C because I have not received any official communication about it. Also if I was declared guilty by the university’s apex committee, how was I entitled to diplomatic passport using which I travelled for two assignments abroad since 2010. An HC judgment quashed all charges against me

I took legal counsel and filed a petition in Delhi High Court on Friday, asking for Committee to be reconstituted. The matter was listed for yesterday, August 23. In court, JNU submitted a notification issued the previous day, 22nd, saying the entire committee has been reconstituted

I am apprehensive that given my role as a witness in the enquiry that found him to have committed sexual harassment, a committee chaired by Prof Bidyut Chakrabarty will not be impartial in any enquiry against me. An apprehension that there is likely to be prejudice or animus towards witnesses such as myself in that case is not unfounded. I therefore request that the executive council reconstitute the inquiry committee.

Entire controversy has been kicked up based on the account of one former professor…who is an RSS supporter.

I never said anything about Kashmir being illegally occupied by India…the organiser introduced me as someone who had said so in an earlier speech from last year.

The point about showing India’s map upside down…that was a picture from the Himal magazine, which points out that the world is round and that nations are not natural objects but imagined constructs.

Regarding the soldiers, I said that the Army is also a means of livelihood and that if we loved our soldiers why do we treat them badly. I did make a distinction between Hinduism and Hindutva, saying the latter is a political ideology that I am opposed to. What I basically said was not anti-national but anti-RSS and Hindutva and if that is a crime today then I don’t know what to say

Nivedita Menon (Writer & Professor)

It is our collective responsibility to continue to be self-critical, recognise the institutionalised ways in which caste, gender and other oppression is entrenched in our universities, and recognise that democratisation is a continuing process, a horizon never to be reached.

Feminists have long tried to build an understanding that desexualises rape — in law and everyday life.

Nivedita Menon (Writer & Professor)

Well, feminism is not about a moment of final triumph but the gradual transformation of the social field, so that old markers shift forever — this shift actually enables many young women today to say, 'I believe in equal rights for women but i'm not a feminist.'
