The University of Delhi students showed their strong objection against the egregious incident that took place in Kolkata’s Jadavpur University last week. The protest was orchestrated outside the Arts Faculty on Saturday. The unfortunate incident took place when Babul Supriyo went to the Jadavpur University for attending a program orchestrated by the ABVP Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad where he was reportedly assaulted by a bevy of students.
Two groups of DU student activist protested, one was of the view that the assault of Babul Supriyo by left activists was unlawful and condemnable. Whereas the other group blamed the stalwart leader of spreading hate and encouraging violence. Effigies were made of leftist leaders and were burnt alongside by ABVP. According to the President of ABVP, Siddhartha Yadav, “the time is near when the world will be aware of the policy of left that is violence-driven”.
According to the (AISA) All India Student Association, the assault of Jadavpur University is an instance of how the students’ forces ago against the malpractices and tyranny of Government is assaulted. The ABVP protestors threw acid bulbs, used lathis towards the students, shattered the premises of the campus.
India, 2019 has seen a significant rise in such egregious cases of hooliganism this points towards the intolerant nature of citizens. The Student Unions of India are becoming belligerent day by day instead of using the conventional way of using communique. This era of protest is violence-driven and comprises of onslaughts. But the fact which is most disturbing and egregious is that innocents are often strangled. The fracas between left and Right-wing is since time immemorial, no one gets to benefit from such quarrel, India needs more grassroot level approach to solve the problems of common folks, rather than focusing on internal feuds.
