Please Don't Make Education Campuses "Battlefield For Politics": Smriti Irani’s Verdict On JNU Attack


Posted on 7th Jan 2020 10:29 am by deep bhatt

Sunday's huge bloody violence at Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) shocked every people in Indian and finally came up with a huge political row, prompting leaders from across parties to also condemn the mob attack on the students and teachers that left at least 34 injured. I already told you that please campuses should not be made ''rajneeti ka akhada'' or "battlefield for politics", as it is our education point Union Minister Smriti Irani said today.

“I have told it several times that educational institutions shouldn't also marked to be attending as a rajneeti ka akhada (battlefield for politics) where students are only fighting for the sake of no reasons because it can ruin the life and progress of our students," Ms Irani told reporters.

Even all the opposition parties have hit out at the BJP-led government at the centre and blamed it for the unprecedented attack. The Congress also said this bloody violence as a  "state-sponsored terrorism", with Rahul Gandhi saying that it was a "reflection of fear" that "fascists in control of our nation" have of the students.

"Being a political leader I really hope students will also not be used as “rajnnetik mohre” (political tools)," Smriti Irani said when she was asked about the JNU episode. And even I have never been in support of all this. Students come universities for their students not for used as any sort of political tools.

"For keeping the right justice up front an investigation has also been started in the running matter of JNU campus and even  it is not justified for me to comment on it as I am in mainly a constitutional post," the MP from Uttar Pradesh's Amethi added.

Our senior Union Ministers S Jaishankar and Nirmala Sitharaman, both alumni of JNU, too had condemned the violence. Ms Sitharaman mainly said the pictures of violence were horrifying and asserted that the government wants universities to be safe spaces for all students.

As thousands of students in various cities basically showed solidarity and even stood up with the JNU students and teachers through nightlong protests and vigils, Union Home Minister Amit Shah sought a report from Delhi Police. The police also said they are doing their best to identifying the masked attackers using "viral screen shots on social media and the CCTV footage". However, no arrests have been made yet. Some of the assailants have also been identified, the police said.
