Activists of 'Go Samrakshan Samithi' barged into the Sundarayya Vignana Kendram, in Hyderabad as soon as JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar rose to speak.
Raising slogans such as ‘Kanhaiya go back’ and ‘traitors should not be allowed to speak’, they threw footwear at him.
However, it did not reach Mr. Kumar. Activists of various Left student organisations present at the venue prevented them, leading to scuffle. The two activists were physically attacked and pushed out even as the police took them into custody.
'Fight against divisive forces will continue'
Later, the Jawaharlal University Student Union leader vowed to fight till the country is rid of divisive forces, and work to establish the rule of “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan and Jai Constitution”.
>Speaking at seminar organised by the Constitution Protection Committee , Mr. Kumar said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government doesn’t even like Swami Vivekananda, as it has not named a single scheme after him but only the RSS ideologues. He reminded that even Swami Vivekananda was not in favour of talking about religion in front of the poor people who struggle to feed for themselves.
“But this Government is only talking about religion and nothing else,” he said.
He said he will >respect the nationalism enshrined in the Constitution and not what the BJP Government defines it to be . Youth of this country constitute more than 55 per cent of the population and they would all have to raise slogans of Jai Jawan Jai Kisan and Jai Constitution and not the slogans promoted by the rulers.
“I believe in Gandhism and the Constitution written by B.R. Ambedkar and at the same time we will follow all the leaders from different spheres who contributed to this country,” he said.
