ABVP takes top spot in Allahabad varsity polls

Lucknow, Oct 1 (IANS) The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Saturday won the President’s post in the students union at Allahabad University.

ABVP’s candidate Rohit Mishra was elected President of the union, defeating his nearest Samajwadi Yuvan Sabha (SYS) opponent Ajeet Yadav by 95 votes.

This was for the first time that an ABVP candidate has won the presidency of the students union here. The significance of the win can be gauged by the fact that BJP president Amit Shah tweeted his greetings to the winning candidates.

“I congratulate all ABVP workers for this historic win, which reflects the changing views of the youth of UP” he said.

SYS candidate Aadil Hamza has been elected vice-president while SYS’s Shivbalak Yadav has won the post of the general secretary. ABVP’s Abhishek Pandey has been elected the joint secretary.

    People who are today denying the way Hindutva forces actively drove Rohith to suicide might not be aware of the relentless abuses and torture he had to go through for taking a political stance against casteist-communal-fascist politics of the Sangh Parivar. This is how an “institutional murder” is committed. This is how marginalised groups like dalits, adivasis and religious minorities are “witch hunted” by the state, police and hindutva groups. It’s never too late to realise the folly of these groups and rise in rage against their politics of hate!

  2. Administrative clamp down in Haryana University for staging a play by Mahshweta Devi

    Barely two months have passed since everyone including President Pranab Mukerjee, PM Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Sushma Swaraj expressed their sadness at passing of Mahashweta Devi, calling her contributions peerless and influential in their personal lives as well.

    On 21st September, the faculty of English and Foreign languages of the Haryana University staged a play based on Mahashweta Devi’s short story, ‘Draupadi , which tells the tale of custodial rape of Dopdi Mejhen, a tribal woman and a naxal. (You can watch it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW2INqTo81g)

    This is another evidence of saffronisation of education system is secretly carried using RSS student wing ABVP.

  3. One more attempt of saffronisation of education system by ABVP radical student wing of RSS using false sedation charges.

    Right-wing attack on Seema Mustafa: it was just a matter of time, and next target could be any of us!
    http://www.indiaresists.com/right-wing-attack-seema-mustafa-just-matter-time-next-target-us/
    It was a matter of time – one by one, the most outspoken and critical voices in the media, in civil society and in standing up for human rights are being picked out and attempts being made to silence them.

    Just confirming that Seema Mustafa – good friend, outstanding journalist and a fearless activist for the Idea of India as laid out in our Constitution has also been included in the list of those targeted by the ABVP FIR against Amnesty International for their hearings on Kashmir.
    Seema has clearly been in their sights for a while and this provided a perfect excuse. Seema was among the better known faces invited to moderate one of the conversations with Kashmiris at the day long event held at the United Theological Institute at Bangalore on Aug 14 .

    In solidarity with Seema Mustafa, with Aakar Patel and Amnesty, and those many many others – unnamed yet targeted unfairly for sedition – when they were protesting – a right conferred on them by the Constitution of India.

    Jai Hind

  4. “…play by Mahashweta Devi…” writes Sheikh

    Incidentally I agree with him that there should be no ban on this play. Students should have the freedom to stage this play in the university campus even though it is on Naxal struggle. At the same time, I also strongly believe that students should have the freedom to have a display of cartoons of all religious figures. Does he agree with me? Or, true to his taqiyya culture, Is he going to demand rights for only one group while denying the same to others?
