According to official sources, the Justice (retd) Ashok Kumar Roopanwal commission has met all the stakeholders and examining the voluminous representations received from them requires three months more time to draw a conclusion.

Consequently, the ministry has extended the tenure of the Commission till August 1, 2016.

Earlier, following Vemula’s death, which also triggered a massive political storm, the Ministry had in January this year decided to constitute a Judicial Commission to review the entire sequence of events and the circumstances and to establish the facts and correctives in the context of the University.

      The report will be very very important . The false accusations against ministers HRD and Dattatreya by Rahul hi, Yechury, Kejriwal and host of other selfish leaders which furthered the agitational mood, if proved guilty shuould be punished by the highest court and permanently barred from political life for the serious crime of sacrificing students' interests. If VC is found not at fault political parties and students should be made to apologise. More importantly a CBI enquiry in to causes and reasons in to why ASA was made to support Yakub , should also be done. The culprits who instigated ASA to be identified.

        This is some news, after a lull. Vemula affair was an advertising gimmick directed by the joker politicians- Yechury, AK, Rahul and Nitish, for cynical reasons- to boost their pre-poll images. It was followed by another drama at JNU , hoisting a mad novice Commie in KK. The main plan was that of Yechury the primary joker. Even JU drama was his making. By this the jokers expected that all the youth will fall into the net. KK was blowing the bugle across the states, not knowing that terror elements have been accompanying him, masquerading as student scholars. Obviously KK was exploited both by these Joker politicians and the terror elements for their own benefit. Now the jokers remain exposed as also the terror elements. No wonder KK, the mad novice Commie, has gone silent. Come September, the Commie drama will get fully exposed.
