New Delhi: The Congress Party’s students wing, NSUI, starts the ‘Gift a rose’ campaign outside Ramjas college to restore peace in the campus.
Teachers, students and journalists were wounded on the Delhi University campus as group clashes broke out over the disruption of a literary festival in Ramjas College allegedly by members of the ABVP.
Violence erupted over the forced cancellation of a seminar organised by the Ramjas college Literary Society, for which JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid were invited.
Khalid was arrested last year in a case of sedition over organising a rally on the JNU campus in which anti-India slogans were allegedly heard. Rashid was the then the JNU student union vice president.
Students owing allegiance to the ABVP were unhappy with the invite to Khalid and Rashid.
