Ramjas row: ABVP leads Tiranga march in Delhi University campus

Amidst the ongoing flame over Ramjas college protests, Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP) students are now leading a protest march in the Delhi University North campus, despite the presence of police in the campus.

The Delhi University Students Union calls it a march for the country as the associations lead a Tiranga march inside the campus. The clashes have reportedly begun in the college.




However, the police told NDTV that sufficient women and senior officers have been deployed as adequate personnel is covering the protest march in the campus.

AISA president, Kawalpreet Kaur says that "outsiders of ABVP have shamelessly entered the college and started the protests. Year after year, ABVP cancels the events they don’t like. When they were denied permission to enter the swimming pool, they ended up beating a physical education teacher." She says, "there were no outsiders involved from our side in the protest."

ABVP leader says that "the student organisation will not allow any anti-national activities in any college. He says that ABVP requested the Principal to cancel Umair Khalid’s invitation and he obliged."


According to the Hindustan Times report, JNU students union (JNUSU) has called for a public meeting at the Administrative Block at 4 PM. On Tuesday, students and teachers from Delhi University (DU) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have planned a march from Khalsa College to Arts Faculty.

DUSU’s Tiranga March is led by ABVP, who had earlier said that they will be protesting against Left-leaning student groups for allegedly supporting those involved in anti-national activities.

In the evening, Nandini Sundar, teacher at DU’s sociology department, Rajeev Kanwar of Dyal Singh College and some DU students will address a public meeting at JNU against the violence at Ramjas College. “This is our call to re-assert right to freedom of speech and expression and raising voice against violence and our solidarity with DU students,” said Mohit K Pandey, JNUSU president.

This comes amidst ongoing controversy over protests that erupted in Ramjas college on February 22 between All India Students Association(AISA) and ABVP over a seminar which was to be attended by Umar Khalid, a JNU student who had reportedly taken part in protests last year where anti-national slogans were raised. Today itself the Principal of Ramjas College said that his heart bleeds when Ramjas bleeds.

“I appeal to the students to not indulge in any activity which spoils the name of Ramjas College. Let us resolve problems in a peaceful and constructive manner. I share safety concerns of the parents,” he said.
