ABVP holds tiranga march in college campus

Tahlka News Desk
New Delhi: The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) held a 'tiranga march' here on Thursday protesting against some Left-leaning students allegedly supporting anti-national activities. The march is organised inside the North campus.Hundreds of students have gathered for the rally and their support rally started from Faculty of Arts and concluded at Ramjas college through Khalsa college campus.

The protesting students, mainly belonging to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's (RSS) student wing ABVP, marched from Ramjas College to the Arts Faculty holding a large Tricolour and shouting slogans.

An ABVP activist said they were protesting against the All India Students Association (AISA) "for shouting anti-India slogans".

"What happened in JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), we will not let it happen in Ramjas," the ABVP activist said.

The march comes days after clashes erupted between the activists of the two student wings outside Ramjas College here on Wednesday, a day after the RSS' students body forced suspension of an event to be addressed by JNU student Umar Khalid.

Khalid was jailed in 2016 on sedition charges for allegedly shouting anti-national slogan.

Lady Shri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur then launched a social media campaign against the ABVP. On Tuesday she left Delhi for Punjab, saying she was pulling out of the campaign.

ABVP activists were blamed for attacking students, teachers and journalists in the campus, triggering widespread condemnation.

Meanwhile, two ABVP members, who were arrested for allegedly attacking a group of AISA supporters, have been suspended from the party for 'indiscipline'
