GNLU’s Bimal Patel emails staff with inspiring tale of pilgrimage against ‘defamatory news’ in oligarchy case

GNLU Gandhinagar director Bimal Patel emailed all faculty members today with a story of a relative walking 4km, vowing to install a statue of Lord Ganesha in his house, in order to support Patel against “the defamatory news about GNLU in Jaymin Brahmbhatt case”.

Patel sent the email as the independent inquiry ordered by the Gujarat high court into alleged cheating by student Brahmbatt remains pending, after a single-judge bench of the same high court had overturned the law school’s earlier investigation into the matter terming it malafide, unreasonable and illegal, and that Patel had turned GNLU into an oligarchy violating human rights.

We have reached out to Patel for comment to clarify which news items by which publications he had alleged in his emails to be defamatory, as well as whether there has been any outcome in the internal inquiry yet.

Full email below:

Quote of the 25th week, Thursday, 23 June 2016: Love cultivates, like a hoe in the garden of family.

Ref: 2306/16

Good morning, Dear Colleagues,

Appreciation for Office of the Registrar for enabling security providers to issue visitors' cards.

Sharing a happiness moment: Myself

A distant family friend was very disturbed to see the defamatory news about GNLU in Jaymin Brahmbhatt case. He could not believe what was happening. He had full faith in the God, myself and GNLU as a whole and kept a mannat to install Ganeshji in his house and walk 4 km prior to the installation. When he learnt about the outcome, he was so much relieved and I could not believe his happiness. I was extremely touched by the gesture.                    



Best regards,

Bimal N. Patel
