Leftist goons unleash violence during the JNU Students’ Union election, ABVP students hurt

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union election, the counting of which is underway, turned violent as leftist goons reportedly attacked Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP)’s volunteers on campus. ABVP is the students wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).


According to DU professor and JNU alumnus Abhinav Prakash, goons of Students’ Federation of India (SFI) and All India Students Association (AISA) even beat up girls and tore their clothes.


According to Prakash, the SFI and AISA, student wings of Communists Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of India Liberation, respectively, were attempting vote counting fraud for the voting which concluded on Friday. He said they (SFI and AISA activists) were upset that they may lose out to ABVP.


He claimed that the Leftist goons had occupied the counting venue and were assaulting students who were opposing the same. He said that the violence is orchestrated to either carry out fraud in counting or getting the elections cancelled.

According to Sunil Ambekar, National Organising Secretary, ABVP, some ABVP students have been admitted to hospital after being attacked by the Leftist goons.


ABVP JNU President, Vijay Kumar has accused the Election Committee (EC) of not following proper election procedure.


The ABVP has also accused the EC of attempting to rig the elections as despite the rules which state that either the candidate or their voting agent is present in the room and sees every paper ballot, the EC broke the seal of ballot box and started counting Central Panel votes without ABVP representative present there.


ABVP even accused the EC of manhandling ABVP counting agents.


After being suspended for few hours, the counting has now resumed.
