Cong Demands Action Against ABVP for Attack on Anand Sharma

Congress today demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi take action against ABVP activists who allegedly manhandled senior party leader Anand Sharma at JNU last night.

Party spokesperson RPN Singh said Sharma has already filed an FIR and immediate action should be taken in the matter.

Senior Congress leader Sharma had yesterday claimed that he was physically attacked by ABVP activists on JNU campus while he was returning with Rahul Gandhi after attending a protest meeting held by students.

Condemning the attack, Singh said, "It showed Modi government in bad light as he was attacked by the goondas of ABVP when police looked the other way."

He said such attack on Opposition leaders had never taken place when Congress-led UPA was in power for 10 years at the Centre.

Asserting that Congress was always for "zero tolerance" towards terrorism and anti-national activities, he asked what the BJP has to say about PDP, its coalition partner in Jammu and Kashmir, which called Afzal Guru as a martyr.

"What action the government has taken against the BJP leaders who have hailed Nathuram Godse as martyr?" Singh asked.

"The mindset of BJP was also exposed on the issue of suicide of Rohith Vemula, the Dalit scholar from Hyderabad University. The way government is acting against students in JNU, is the PM going to muzzle students in every campus?" he asked.
