Why Pratap Bhanu Mehta’s Resignation From NMML Smacks Of Elitist Hypocrisy

An open letter of resignation to the administration of the Nehru Memorial Museum Library (NMML) was recently issued by a so-called public intellectual, in protest against a particular appointment. In case you need reminding, Mr. Pratap Bhanu Mehta, a member of the executive committee of the NMML, has time and again questioned the integrity of the mandate given to the present central government. His latest action is nothing but a display of intellectual opportunism and unqualified arrogance.
