A certain student union holds a grudge against JNU: Sanjay Raut

MUMBAI: In a veiled attack against the BJP and its affiliated teams, Shiv Sena Deputy Rajya Sabha said Monday that a particular student union holds a grudge against Jawaharlal Nehru University, which has produced a Nobel Prize and recognized politicians, industrialists, poets and authors.

While Raut did not mention any attire, it was possibly a reference to the RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, accused of unleashing violence on the JNU campus in Delhi on Sunday night.

I have seen that a student union holds a grudge against an institution like JNU that has awarded it a Nobel Prize, as well as politicians, industrialists, authors and poets. The university has been subject to constant attacks over the past five years. He told a marathi news channel here.

The professor, who jointly won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economics and Harvard, completed the JNU Master in Economics in 1983.

Raut said that amid the riots, people in the government are busy with laws such as the Citizenship Amendment Law.

If the students are not sure, then the country is not safe. It is not a good sign when police break into a university campus in the national capital and open fire. Masked people assault another university and students are bleeding, he said.

These are definitely not signs that factual powers have the law and order of the country under control, he added.

Violence had erupted at Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday night when masked men armed with sticks and bars attacked students and teachers and damaged property on campus, prompting the administration to call the police who conducted a flag march .
