New Delhi: After the stone-pelting incident at Jawaharlal Nehru University, the president of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad asserted that people from outside the university had turned up to the screening of a BBC documentary on PM Modi and assaulted ABVP members, claiming that the action was planned by the Students’ Federation of India, the Left’s student wing.
“Students from outside JNU attended the screening and attacked ABVP students,” the student said. We made a conscious choice to avoid the controversy and instructed all members not to go near the screening, according to ABVP President Rohit Kumar.
However, he further added, “When the lights went out yesterday, they had to go out for dinner, and while they were returning, JNUSU members manhandled them.”
Additionally, the ABVP has filed a written complaint with the police and another one with the JNU administration.
Meanwhile, ABVP has demanded that action be taken within two days to ensure the safety of everyone on the university campus.
Apart from this, ABVP also released photos of those they claimed were outsiders and were responsible for the incident and circled their faces.
The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Tuesday experienced massive chaos and violence due to the cut off of the supply of electricity by the campus administration, resulting in a gathering of students at the JNU students’ union office demanding the screening of the BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
