Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) ‘students’ allegedly defaced the newly put up V D Savarkar Marg signboard on campus and put up a poster calling it ‘Mohammad Ali Jinnah Marg’. JNUSU President elect Aishe Ghosh took to Facebook last night to show that the defaced signboard was changed to ‘B R Ambedkar Marg’.
“We can never ever accept apologists and stooges of the British who undermined our secular fabric. Let’s respect those who gave us our constitution,” She posted. However, later even the B R Ambedkar Marg signboard seems to have been defaced. A poster calling it ‘Mohammad Ali Jinnah Marg’ has now been stuck next to it.
The decision to name the road on campus as ‘VD Savarkar Marg’ was taken in November last year.
