Stands high the Busts of three eminent personalities in the North Campus of University of Delhi which was installed on the shining bright morning of Tuesday. The Establishment of the sculptures were the initiative of Students’ Union President Shakti Singh under ABVP Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad. These busts were built in front of the Art Faculty of University of Delhi. According to the general consensus the busts are believed to be installed overnight.
According to Singh there has been a demand of installations of busts since November last year, there has been written communication with University via letters. Singh reiterated that it was their responsibility to evoke the sense of patriotism among the students for our freedom fighters. He also stated that the busts were installed around 6 am on Tuesday.
The students leader stated that this was a necessary step so that the hoax around these Leaders are curtailed permanently.
The sole aim behind such development is to obliterate from the mind of students the wrong notion about our freedom fighters and to remind them about the contribution made by these leaders for gaining Independence so that deep reverence is inculcated among the students. He further added that the monetary funds were collected by the students of the University. The motto behind the Establishment of busts of these three leaders is that “though there ways might differ from each other but the ultimate goal was same”.
Piyush Thakur the former Law faculty says that these three leaders have no other installations anywhere else thus it was mandatory to build the one. Also the DUSU members last week raised a demand to name the students’ union office after Veer Savarkar.
