NSUI goons vandalise Savarkar statue inside Delhi University campus, put shoe garland

The DU administration had reportedly not given permission for the installation of the statue despite repeated requests by the ABVP leaders.

In a shocking act of vandalism by NSUI goons, the student organisation of the Congress desecrated the statue of Veer Savarkar by blacking its face and putting a shoe garland around it.

According to the reports, the NSUI goons resorted to vandalism on the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday outside the gate of the Delhi University’s Arts Faculty in North campus.

More than 20 NSUI goons are suspected to be involved in the shocking incident. Shockingly, the NSUI activists also uploaded the video on the social media boasting about their actions.

Akshay Lakra, Delhi president of the NSUI, reportedly visited the campus late last night and paid his respects to the busts of Bhagat Singh and Subhas Chandra Bose before blackening Savarkar’s bust with ink, putting a shoe garland on it and raising slogans against him.

“Putting Savarkar on the same pedestal as Bhagat Singh and Bose, they have tried to whitewash history and paint Savarkar as a patriot. We will not let ABVP use Singh and Bose as political pawns,” said Lakhra.

This statue was erected by ABVP activists on Monday night along with the busts of Bhagat Singh and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. The DU administration had not given permission for the monument despite repeated requests by the ABVP leaders.

After the statue was erected, the NSUI and some of the liberals had objected against placing of Savarkar’s bust alongside that of Bhagat Singh and Netaji.
