A day after the Bharatiya Janata Party’s youth wing, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad took out a Tiranga march in Delhi University, several protest marches and counter-marchers are expected at the Delhi University and Jawahar Lal University campuses Today. The march, led by DU and JNU’s teachers and students and joined by All India Students Association members will start from Khalsa College in the North Campus to the Arts Faculty.
ABVP and DUSU organised a rally, yesterday. Gurmehar Kaur who is at the centre of the controversy surrounding the premier educational institutions and was supposed to participate in the rally today decided to distance herself from the war playing out at the Ramjas College. Kaur, who on Monday filed a complaint and was given protection from the DCW, withdrew from the campaign on Tuesday and said, “I’m withdrawing from the campaign. Congratulations everyone. I request to be left alone. I said what I had to say. I have been through a lot and this is all my 20-year-self could take.”
