Mumbai: A day after Aaditya Thackeray lambasted the Mumbai University for missing yet another deadline for declaration of exam results, the Shiv Sena youth wing leader on Friday assured that he has asked for an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over this issue and also demanded the resignation of the state’s Education Minister.
Speaking at a press conference in the city, Aaditya said, ” Education Minister Vinod Tawade, should resign over the delayed result of Mumbai University. A mental harassment case must be registered against him (Tawade), as parents and student has been suffering a lot due to delay. I have also asked for an appointment from Prime Minister Narendra Modi over this issue but did not get any confirmation yet”.
Taking a jibe at the state government, Aaditya asserted that if people who are ruling the cant handle University issues; how will they rule the state?
“If the Mumbai University authority is having a problem with the issuing of the results, then the government should appoint an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) or Indian Police Service (IPS) level authority as an administrator to maintain peace as all chaos lies at Vice-Chancellor level only. Minister who are campaigning for election and are not able to handle the University issues; how will they rule the state,” he said.
Yesterday, in a series of tweets, Aaditya said that “it’s been almost three months that the results aren’t declared” and “only by sacking vice chancellor, things won’t settle down. The cabinet minister must resign too”.
