Rustication notice for faculty of arts GS Monday, October 15, 2001

VADODARA: M S University's faculty of arts general secretary Nitin Patel was issued a show-cause notice asking him to explain his misbehaviour on campus and alleged fraudulent means for seeking admission to the faculty and reasons on why he should not be rusticated for the same.

As per the investigation carried out by the MSU authorities, Patel had fraudulently sought admission in MSU even while he was a student at the M K Law College in Bharuch last year.

Nitin Patel was a student of second year law at the M K college last year, and concurrently he was also admitted as student at MSU through a court order.

Patel had filed a case against MSU after his request for re-admission was denied. The student leader was also penalised for three terms after he was caught copying during a university examination.

Teachers had earlier boycotted classes for a day to protest against Patel and his supporters who had indulged in hooliganism.

Modi features in Congress 'united' campaign Monday, October 15, 2001

AHMEDABAD: It is just a week since Narendra Modi occupied the chief minister's chair in Gandhinagar, but his caricatures will be floating around in the villages, thanks to the Gujarat Congress' determination to show the BJP in poor light by launching the 'Narmada Jalyatra' this month.

This campaign is designed to bolster the Congress image and spread awareness about the fact that the "BJP did nothing about the dam since the Supreme Court granted clearance for increasing its height," Congress sources said.

The campaign posters have been specially designed to appeal to the common man and are a satirical comment on what the Keshubhai government did (or didn't do) since the Supreme Court clearance to raise the height of the dam.

And the surprise in store is - everyone's invited - all the factions of the Congress are going to be participating in this 7,000-km-long journey from Kevadia colony to the dam site through over 200 talukas.

The yatra's theme takes off from last year's function at Kevadia colony on Sardar Patel Jayanti, which concluded with arson and rioting, where state ministers became virtual targets and had to escape from the venue.

Adding a slice of humour to the campaign are posters and handouts displaying caricatures of Modi and Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee chief Amarsinh Chaudhary, where Modi sits on a locked chest depicting the Narmada dam and asks around for the key.

An attendant is shown telling Chaudhary - "this man is asking for the key to the Narmada chest, can you ask Keshubhai where it is?"

One lakh such posters and five lakh of these handouts will be distributed during the campaign. The handouts contain a recall of all the promises about completing the project in two years given by the BJP.

The Congress has not only decided to activate all its four former chief ministers to add clout to the campaign but also considers it a value-added effort to consolidate its position in rural areas.

Five 'kumbhs' in which the Narmada river waters will be carried from five destinations in specially-designed chariots, will add colour to the programme, sources said.

Addressing the meetings during the journey will be former chief ministers Chaudhary, Madhavsinh Solanki, Shankersinh Vaghela, Dilip Parikh and Ahmed Patel, Dr Urmila Patel and Manoharsinh Jadeja.

The five sites chosen for the flagging-off of the different 'yatra' routes on October 16 are Porbandar, Umergam, Lunawada, Amirgadh and Bhuj.

They will converge at the dam site on October 31, marking the Sardar Patel Jayanti, and there will be public meetings in taluka towns everyday along the route.
