Kohima, January 6 (NE): The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) – Nagaland unit expresses deep shock and anguish over the dastardly attack by the ABVP goons inside the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi campus on the night of January 5, 2020, a press release from the President NSUI Nagaland, X Chophika Sumi on Monday, January 6, informed.
The NSUI Nagaland condemns the act of the ABVP goons who went on a rampage inside the campus armed with rods, sticks and stones with their faces covered under the cover of darkness while chanting provocative slogans. The attack on JNU students and faculties is an attack on the entire students of India, stated the press release.
Highlighting the attack on girl students, NSUI asked, if this is what ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ meant which PM Modi envisaged. Also, the union expressed shock at the apathy of the Delhi police who did absolutely nothing to contain the situation. It only signifies the nexus between the perpetrators and the police which is directly under the command of the Union Home Ministry, it added.
The NSUI Nagaland unit further expresses it’s sympathy and support to the JNU students and facilitate at this hour of grief, and appeal to the responsible authority to fast track the case to ensure speedy justice to the victims and also ensure stringent actions against the perpetrators so that this type of thuggery does not become a precedent, the press release stated.
