Just days after students from the Delhi University and Jawaharlal Nehru University took to streets to protests against the violence that took place in Ramjas College, last week, the RSS backed Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) are set to lead protest march seeking a campus ban on leftist groups.
Yesterday, two ABVP activists were suspended after Delhi Police arrested them for allegedly attacking two AISA supporters on the North Campus of Delhi University. Soon after suspending them, ABVP issued a statement saying that they were against any kind of attack and want to maintain a violence-free atmosphere in the campus.
The Delhi University Student Union (DUSU) held a ‘Tiranga March’ led by ABVP a day before DU students staged a protest against the group. The ABVP asserted that they are protesting against Left-leaning student groups who are involved in anti-national activities.
On February 28, ‘ABVP go back go back’—slogans were heard over and over again across the North Campus of the DU after students and faculty from various colleges took out a protest march against the violence by the alleged ABVP activists at Ramjas college a few days back.
Ramjas college had last week witnessed large-scale violence between members of the AISA and the ABVP leading to several injuries. The reason behind the clashes was an invite extended to JNU students Umar Khalid, who is facing sedition charge, and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar. The seminar was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.
