swamyNew Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, in a letter to HRD Minister Smriti Irani has asked to establish a central university in Thiruvananthapuram after Dalit icon Sree Narayana Guru who is widely revered for his contribution to uplifting the members of Kerala’s backward Ezhava caste.

‘…A Central University in Trivandrum should be established in his name because he uplifted a most backward community called Ezhava to such heights that today this community has become the most educated community of Kerala,’ quoted Swami in his letter to Irani.

Swamy said he had attended a meeting of the Sree Narayana Dharma Sanghom Trust on December 31 last year which was also attended by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

‘During the course of the speech, we had committed that for great Guru Sree Narayana, a central university in Trivandrum should be named after him,’ the letter said.
