The authorities of Osmania University went ahead with the rechristening ceremony of an old library on Friday and also inaugurated a new research centre on the name of Dr BR Ambedkar amid protests from student groups and Nizam’s family.

Former chairman of the University Grants Commission Sukhdeo Thorat renamed the university library as Bharat Ratna Dr BR Ambedkar library in spite of protests from the Nizam’s family.

The family of Nizam had urged the university authorities to withdraw their decision of changing the name of the library and had also petitioned governor of the state ESL Narasimhan. Grandson and great grandson of the last Nizam told that history was being altered and that they have decided to move court.
