The Congress-backed NSUI – the main opposition to the ABVP has distributed pamphlets titled “ABVP is RSS. Resist RSS Take Over of DU” in Hindi and English language.
The pamphlet mentions controversial quotes of RSS and BJP leaders.It also says the “RSS is a violent and anti-national organisation”,calling it as a “deeply communal” outfit which was banned thrice.
The NSUI till date hasn’t called out ABVP on issues like violence in Ramjas College in February earlier this year but with this act they have sent out a strong message.
The pamphlet has three parts. The first is on “What happens when RSS takes over a university?“; the second says “RSS is against your freedoms” and the third reminds students that “Nathuram Godse, a former RSS member, killed Gandhi”.
Ruchi Gupta, All India Congress Committee joint secretary in charge of the NSUI who drafted the pamphlet, told¬†The Telegraph: “Many students are unaware that the ABVP is a front of the RSS. The RSS has attained legitimacy because their anti-national role has not been highlighted enough.Today, the Delhi School of Economics denied permission to students to hold a panel discussion on the right to privacy on the ground that it was “not an economics programme”.
“This is false propaganda and their leader Rahul Gandhi is in court for repeating the same propaganda.” said Saket Bahuguna,National Media Convenor of ABVP.
