“The Allahabad University administration and the SP government have learnt nothing from the Rohith Vemula case. Else the incident of Richa’s harassment would not have taken place,” Mayawati said in a statement.

On a day eight Opposition parties came out in support of Richa Singh, BSP chief Mayawati attacked the Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh saying had it learnt any lessons from the suicide of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula at Hyderabad university, the “harassment” of Allahabad University Students Union president would not be taking place.

“The Allahabad University administration and the SP government have learnt nothing from the Rohith Vemula case. Else the incident of Richa’s harassment would not have taken place,” Mayawati said in a statement.

Mayawati said Richa is the first woman president of AUSU, whose only “crime” crime is that she opposed the invitation to BJP MP Yogi Adityanath to visit the campus. Mayawati said Richa had opposed Adityanath’s visit to “stop Allahabad city from becoming a river of hatred”.

“This did not go well with the university administration and BJP’s student wing (ABVP), and they started a campaign against her at every level and threatened her,” she said.

Mayawati said if there was any anomaly in Richa’s admission to the PhD course, then the University officials responsible for it should be punished. She asked why the matter was being raised two years after she took admission.

Mayawati said the Union HRD Ministry should take steps to stop the “excess” being committed on a woman, otherwise ABVP activists will “play with the lives of innumerable boys and girls”.

UP government should also provide security to Richa, demanded Mayawati.
