Mumbai: A day after Yuva Sena sought removal of Mumbai University Vice Chancellor Dr Rajan Welukar, Swabhimaan Sanghathana leader Nitesh Rane on Thursday met the VC, with a proposal to rename a building in the University’s Sports Campus after Chhatrapati Shivaji.

"The Sena used the Vice Chancellor when it wanted the
book (by Rohinton Mistry) banned and now they want his head.

This is definitely double standards. Welukar is a respected
man and in no circumstances should he resign," Rane said.

On the issue of renaming the building, Rane said, "we
have got an assurance from Welukar that he will look into the
matter."

Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray who has been
spearheading a campaign demanding sweeping changes in the
functioning of Mumbai University met Chief Minister Prithviraj
Chavan yesterday.

He demanded immediate sacking of the vice-chancellor
and Minister of Higher and Technical Education Rajesh Tope.

Among the major issues raised were the vacant posts at
the university and confusion over allotment of hall tickets.
