|Pairmal and his God|
Gujarat government has spent Rs. I.4 million to defend Ex-vice chancellor of Gujarat University Parimal Trivedi in Atrocity case. Parimal Trivedi insulted Pankaj Shrimali, a dalit professor, by castiest remarks. Mr. Shirmali lodged Atrocity case against Parimal Trivedi. Gujarat University has spent more than a million to save Parimal Trivedi. The case is fought in Gujarat High court.
Modi is God of Parimal Trivedi. People like Parimal Trivedi has given immense contribution in saffronisation of students in Gujarat. Parimal Trivedi was BJP's Vastrapur ward chief in Ahmedabad in the late 1990s. He was said to be a good slogan writer for the BJP during elections or protest campaigns. At that time, he was a lecturer teaching physics at MG Science College. Trivedi was made the pro vice-chancellor of Gujarat University in 2005 when Anandiben Patel was the education minister. He was made vice-chancellor in 2006 and continues to hold this position, enjoying the patronage of Anandiben. After getting a PhD during his first term as V-C, he managed to get a second term in 2009 despite being embroiled in many controversies. In the 2007 Gujarat Assembly election, he also tried to get a ticket for the Ellisbridge Vidhan Sabha seat.
In August 2010, when Modi feared that he might be summoned for questioning in the Kauser-Sohrabuddin killings case, the chief minister had it communicated to Trivedi that he would like a big function organized at the convention hall of Gujarat University. Trivedi issued a circular to all colleges and followed it up with scores of phone calls which ensured a huge participation of around 7000 students, teachers and trustees of local institutions. In the meeting the rabble-rouser Modi raised temperature against CBI.
