Courting controversy, ABVP state secretary Subir Haldar today threatened to “cut off” the legs of “anti-national” Left-aligned students of Jadavpur University (JU) if they stepped out of the campus.
“The Jadavpur University is becoming a hub of anti-national elements. If these anti-national Leftist students of JU try to step out of the campus we will cut off their legs,” Haldar told a protest rally outside JU campus.
When asked, Haldar later told PTI, “What I meant to say is those students who raise slogans to divide our motherland, who raise slogans in favour of separatists cut up our country into separate parts. Then why can’t we say that we will take steps to stop such activities.”
Protesting against alleged anti-national activities inside JU campus, ABVP today took out a protest march from Goalpark area to Jadavpur police station demanding action against it.
“We had earlier decided to take out a protest rally from Goalpark area to Jadavpur university campus. But since we will not be allowed to enter the campus, we decided to sit in front of Jadavpur police station. We raised slogans and protested in a peaceful way,” Haldar said.
In a bid to avoid any untoward incident, police had put up three barricades outside the JU campus. JU students came out of the campus and shouted slogans against ABVP but any untoward incident was averted by police.
“If ABVP tries to attack JU campus, then they will face stiff resistance,” a student of the university said.
ABVP and the Left wing student groups clashed on Friday in the university campus over the screening of Vivek Agnihotri-directed film ‘Buddha in a Traffic Jam’, triggering chaos during which some girls were allegedly molested.
