Kejriwal trying to stir up lawlessness on DU campus: BJP

A large number of students today held a protest march in Delhi University against the last week's Ramjas college incident.

However, the student left for Jalandhar on Tuesday to be with her family, following which the Delhi Police has asked its counterpart there to provide security to her.

Hundreds of students and teachers hit the streets of Delhi University yesterday afternoon to protest against campus violence as more political leaders and sportspersons joined the swirling nationalism row. The students carried flags, banners and shouted "Vande Mataram" slogans.

The ABVP members, who have termed its protest #SaveDU, the same as the Ramjas protests, gathered outside the Arts faculty, and waved a giant tricolour, reported Indian Express.

Members of the Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India (NSUI) also staged a hunger strike in the campus, against the ABVP. The protesters alleged violence by the ABVP and shouted slogans against the students' body and vouched for freedom of speech and expression.

Twenty-four-year-old Gurmehar Kaur, whose social media campaign against the ABVP has gone viral, got caught up in a Twitter war on Monday with ex-cricketer Virendra Sehwag and actor Randeep Hooda who called her a "political pawn".

The girl has also alleged that she was hit with a stone by the ABVP supporters, he said.

Kaur, daughter of Kargil martyr captain Mandeep Singh, has reportedly left Delhi in the wave of backlash she received after her social media. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. However, Sehwag clarified that he did not want to bully anyone.

The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad or as you may know it ABVP has been in news for nearly a year now due to the various protests and controversies in JNU as well as Delhi University.
