Delhi government orders inquiry in claims of anti-national sloganeering by ABVP



Amidst the growing controversy on the arrest of JNU’s students’ union leader Kanhaiya Kumar and the subsequent police’s crackdown, Delhi government on Saturday ordered an inquiry to verify the claims.

Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, said that there were reports that anti-national slogans were were chanted by the students belonging to RSS-affiliated student union ABVP.

He said, “There are claims that JNU student leaders shouted anti-India slogans and counter claims that ABVP activists did it. To find truth, Del govt is directing DM to conduct an enquiry.”

The video purportedly showing the members of ABVP chanting Pakistan Zindabad and other anti-national slogans went viral on Saturday. This, according to the voice in the video, was to defame the students owing allegiance to the Left and progressive ideologies.
