Kolkata: RSS’s student wing ABVP on Saturday said it will not permit “Naxalite (Maoists) and anti-national” activities to go on at the Jadavpur University and will send a detailed report on such “anti-nationals” to the home ministry for appropriate treatment.
An ABVP delegation met West Bengal Governor KN Tripathi on Saturday, a day after Jadavpur authorities lodged police complaint against outsiders, including three ABVP activists, for allegedly molesting female students during a commotion over an open-air screening of Vivek Agnihotri’s film “Buddha In A Traffic Jam”.
“A few Leftist, Naxalite professors had murdered a vice chancellor earlier and today some Leftist professors like them are still carrying on condemnable activities in the campus.
“We will not tolerate this. We have filed a police complaint against a handful and we will also send details about the anti-nationals to the home ministry for official treatment according to a democratic process,” said ABVP leader Subir Haldar.
The campus was on the boil over the screening of the movie, organised by a group backed by ABVP, that faced loud protests from a large section of left-leaning students loyal to FETSU and sparked clashes. The governor has sought a report from the vice chancellor over the incident.
Accusing some of the organisers of molesting female students, the FETSU members allegedly beat up some ABVP supporters and confined four of them to the administrative building.
“During the screening, they tried to control freedom of speech. A professor and his three students were beaten up. They were hospitalised. Later, police complaints were also filed against them. We won’t tolerate this misbehaviour. We will not let Naxalite and anti-national activities to go on inside Jadavpur campus. We will take all steps to ensure that,” said Haldar.
