Delhi University administration takes down Savarkar statue under pressure from NSUI

A couple of days back, NSUI activists blackened the bust of Veer Savarkar to protest against its unauthorised installation.

Following string protest from NSUI over the installation of busts of Veer Savarkar, Bhagat Singh and Subash Chandra Bose in Delhi University campus, the Delhi University administration has removed the statues on the assurance by the university that after DUSU elections, busts of freedom fighters will be re-installed following the procedure required.

A couple of days back, NSUI activists blackened the bust of Veer Savarkar to protest against its unauthorised installation. They also put a shoe garland around Savarkar’s statue. ABVP has demanded strict disciplinary action against the miscreants to stooped down to such low levels and insulted India’s freedom fighters.

The president of the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), Shakti Singh of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), on Tuesday installed busts of the three historical figures at the North Campus of the university without seeking approval from the university or civic authorities.

According to Singh, he repeatedly wrote letters to the administration seeking permission to install the statues in the campus but his letters didn’t elicit any response from the administration. “We submitted a couple of letters to the varsity administration and even met the Vice Chancellor in March. However, our requests fell on deaf ears. When we realised that the students’ union is not being taken seriously, we had to helplessly install the busts in the hope that the youth would be inspired by them,” said Singh.
