The ABVP has alleged that its members, including its JNU unit secretary, were attacked by members of the Left-backed students' outfits and 11 of their members were missing, while 25 were injured. "Masked goons of Left entered JNU today and beat up the students who went for registration. The JNU students affiliated to ABVP were brutally attacked," it added.
Home Minister Amit Shah's office has released a statement following violence inside Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus. Shah instructed Delhi Police Commissioner to take necessary action, the statement said. He has also ordered an enquiry to be carried out by a Joint CP level officer and asked for a report to be submitted as soon as possible, the statement added.
These kind of mass attacks usually gets compromised as there were students involved in it. But this is the high time for the BJP to step up and act as efficiently as possible considering this as an alarming issue regarding the ongoing situation in the country. Most importantly they aren’t in a situation to afford the blame if this incident turns out political.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala criticised BJP-led central government in the wake of violence on the campus of JNU. "Is this how the Modi government seeks revenge against students and youth?" he tweeted. He also shared a video statement saying, "Modi ji and Amit Shah ji, don't harass the students and youth so much that the whole country stands against you."
Reacting to the incident, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor tweeted, "This is unbelievable. These are tactics from Germany in the 1930s, not India in 2020. I implore the authorities to stop this." He added, "They are destroying Indian democracy as well as what remains of our nation's image in the democratic world."
