Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) has filed a police complaint against the leaders of BJP Yuva Morcha in connection with the violence after yesterday’s election for Goa University’s student council.
A BJP-backed panel defeated NSUI panel, following which there was a clash between the two groups which forced police to intervene.
“If I had not been given protection by police, I would have been killed by the BJYM members,” Goa NSUI president Ahraz Mulla alleged today.
NSUI has filed a police complaint against BJYM members Akhilesh Parrikar, Atmaram Barve, Gajanan Tilve, Pranav Sanvardekar and others.
Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh who is in the state said the party will hold a protest march on August 29 over the attack and the “rigging” of university polls.
“BJP activists were not even students. NSUI president’s car was blocked. He was abused, threatened. Our university representatives were earlier threatened by BJP leaders who went to their houses and warned the parents,” Singh alleged.
“We will not tolerate this at all…Even our candidature was rejected on flimsy grounds,” he alleged, adding Congress will carry on with its agitation until the guilty are arrested.
