Attack on JNU students ‘state-sponsored mayhem’, alleges Congress
NEW DELHI: The Congress alleged that the attack on JNU students by masked miscreants on Sunday was “state-sponsored mayhem” and asked whether this was a “revenge by the Modi government” against students and youth.
A clash broke out between members of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) and the ABVP on the university campus.
The university administration said masked miscreants armed with sticks were roaming around on the campus, damaging property and attacking people, prompting it to call the police to maintain law and order.
The Left-controlled students’ union and the ABVP blamed each other for the attack.
“Enmity of Modi Govt to JNU is well known. Delhi Police is at the gate of JNU. Despite this, goondas brandishing lathis & rods beat up students and teachers in Sabarmati & other hostels. Is this state-sponsored mayhem being unleashed(sic)?” he posed in another tweet.
