BJP hints at action against Jammu University V-C over ABVP ban

Ram Madhvan
New Delhi/Nagpur:
BJP general secretary Ram Madhav has slammed the ‘obstinate behavior’ of Jammu University vice-chancellor professor RD Sharma to ban the party’s youth wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) in all educational institutions in the region and said action would be taken accordingly.

“BJP ministers take up Jammu Univ VC obstinate behaviour against ABVP. Action wl b taken (sic),” Madhav tweeted.

The entry of the ABVP has been banned in all educational institutions in the Jammu region. The ban comes in the backdrop of BJP sharing power with PDP in the state.

It is reported that the ABVP sought permission from Government Women College Prade, Jammu, for holding national executive committee meet, which was outrightly rejected, even though deputy chief minister and senior BJP leader Nirmal Singh was the guest for the event.

Meanwhile, the state BJP leaders have come at forefront in ABVP’s defense.

Assembly speaker Kavinder Gupta has termed the move as unfortunate and related it to depriving the organisation of its political rights.
