The students’ organisation has organised a discussion with its JNU secretary to tell their side of the JNU saga at the Mumbai University
The Jawhararlal Nehru University (JNU) saga is set to temporarily shift base to Mumbai University (MU). Today, the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad’s (ABVP) MU unit has planned a discussion, which will be helmed by JNU’s ABVP secretary Lalit Pandey. The title of discussion, scheduled to start at 3 pm in the university campus, is ‘JNU ka Sach’, where the ABVP will give its side of the JNU saga.
The ABVP had also organised an event in Dombivli on Friday, in which they invited Suyash Desai, Vice President of ABVP’s JNU wing. In the event, there was a discussion about the other aspects of JNU, which they allege is not being spoken about
Rohit Chandode, organisation secretary of ABVP’s MU unit, said, “We are going to have a major event, it will be an open discussion within the campus ground. We are expecting nearly 150 students to participate in it.
There’s a lot happening at JNU, which never came out. However, with the ABVP bringing it out, and media taking the issue, some part of it has come to the fore.” The talk will also focus on the February 9 event, and the videos that came out of it.
He added, “We are expecting some opposition and hence, we haven’t yet given out pamphlets or started campaigning about it. We want the students here to know what is actually going on in JNU and this is the best way to bring it to the fore. An open discussion with the students who have seen it all.”
The ABVP had also organised an event in Dombivli on Friday, in which they invited Suyash Desai, Vice President of ABVP’s JNU wing. There was a discussion about the other aspects of JNU, which they allege is not being spoken about.
Yadunath Deshpande, organisation secretary of ABVP’s Konkan region, said, “People are talking about what happened after February 9, in JNU. We are trying to bring to the public what happened on February 9. The protest that took place in JNU and other aspects, which people aren’t talking about, all of this is critical to understand the JNU event. Who better to speak about it than the students who saw it all?” Deshpande said the ABVP would be holding a lot more interactions and discussions of this sort in Mumbai.
