Al­ter­nate Cit­i­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Min­is­ter Nikos Toskas ac­cused Athens Mayor Giro­gos Kami­nis yes­ter­day of “po­lit­i­cal hypocrisy” af­ter the lat­ter’s call for his res­ig­na­tion over the state of the cap­i­tal’s uni­ver­si­ties. Toskas said Kami­nis’s call was po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated and driven by his am­bi­tion to play a cen­tral role on the coun­try’s po­lit­i­cal stage. He also said Kami­nis har­bored per­sonal bias against him. Ear­lier in the day Kami­nis told Skai Ra­dio that the sit-ins at uni­ver­si­ties across Athens are be­ing used by deal­ers to ped­dle drugs. “I’m ashamed of the sit­u­a­tion at the uni­ver­si­ties,” he said. He also cited the re­cent beat­ing of Pan­teion Univer­sity pro­fes­sor An­ge­los Syri­gos. Kami­nis in­sisted that Toskas should re­sign, say­ing that his in­dif­fer­ence to the prob­lems is feed­ing a sense of law­less­ness at aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions.
