Last week, Left-affiliated AISA and BJP-backed ABVP clashed with each other at Ramjas college causing injuries to many. The reason of the clash was an invite 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 The seminar was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.
A few policemen and journalists were also roughed up during the violence. Meanwhile, the Student wing of Congress is holding a one-day hunger strike outside Delhi University Arts faculty today to protest against recent violence in Ramjas college. The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) is demanding the restoration of peace and safety in Delhi university.
