Thiruvananthapuram: RSS advocate MS Rajendra has been invited to the second campus of the Rajiv Gandhi Center for Biotechnology (RGCB). A day after Union Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan said Golwalkar’s name would be named, protests were pouring in from several quarters.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala were among those who sent letters to the Center opposing the naming of the new facility after Golwalkar.
MP Shashi Tharoor suggested the new campus be named after Dr. Palpu, a renowned bacteriologist and social reformer from Travancore. However, BJP state spokesperson B Gopalakrishnan said that the center’s decision on bigotry prompted Congress and CPM leaders to find fault.
