ABVP’s rally against ‘anti-nationalism’ in Jadavpur varsity

Kolkata, May 9 (IANS) Deriding left-leaning students for turning Jadavpur University into a “hub of anti-national activities”, the RSS students’ wing ABVP on Monday took out a protest rally outside the varsity.

With the rally coming days after the screening of Vivek Agnihotri’s controversial “Buddha in a Traffic Jam” triggered clashes and caused tension in the campus on Friday, police took no chances and fortified the varsity putting up barricades at the entrances.

Carrying the Indian tricolours and shouting slogans, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists took out the rally from Gol Park to the Jadavpur police station.

“The leftists have turned the university into a den of anti-national activities. Forgetting their own country, they raise pro-Pakistan slogans. This rally is to condemn their anti-nationalism,” said ABVP leader Subir Haldar.

On Saturday, a section of varsity students, led by the Left-backed Faculty of Engineering and Technology Students’ Union (FETSU), took out a protest march demanding arrest of ABVP supporters and a campus free of “BJP-RSS-ABVP terror”.

Besides Governor K.N. Tripathi seeking a report from Vice Chancellor Suranjan Das over the issue of the clashes and commotion over an open-air screening of Agnihotri’s film on Friday, the varsity authorities have lodged a police complaint against outsiders, including three ABVP activists, for allegedly molesting female students during the event.
