New Delhi: The Centre on Wednesday sought a report from the Trinamool Congress led government in West Bengal over the anti-India protest held in Jadavpur University last evening.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has stepped into the case and has asked the state government for a report on the slogans pitched by university students at a rally in support of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
Jadavpur University vice-chancellor denied to comment anything on camera, but said that the university will issue a press statement shortly.
According to reports, the students who organised the protest mentioned that they do not support such kind of anti-national slogans and also termed students or people who organised the protest as fringe elements. However, the people who organised the protest are absconding from the university.
This protest can be seen as a continuation of what happened in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), where a group of students had organized a cultural evening to mourn the hanging of the Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which some students raised anti-India slogans last week.
Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) students protested against the cultural evening after which a political fight escalated in the capital.
