No University for Dalits | The Wire

Ten Dalit students were rusticated from the University of Hyderabad in 2001; one of them recounts the events as they played out.

Dalits, he says, have always been discriminated against and Podile, according to him, is one of the biggest perpetrators of such discrimination. “Many Dalit students couldn’t go home during vacations and they would stay on to study at the hostels,” he explained. “Chief Warden Podile would take these students to the main gate in jeeps and ask them to get out, calling them ‘unofficial’. These were students who were on the rolls of the University,” he recalled.
