Raipur (Chhattisgarh), Aug 21(ANI): Activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the students' wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), staged a protest against Rahul Gandhi, visiting the Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University in Raipur on Friday.
They claimed that such visits by political leaders only politicised the campus environment.
Gandhi interacted with members of the National Students Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress party.
"In the past too, the ABVP has demanded that politicising the university campus should not happen. Earlier, university authorities didn't allow such activities, but, due to political pressure by Congress workers, the authorities have again given permission to hold programmes on the university campus," claimed Neelesh Koshal, an ABVP leader.
"ABVP has always maintained that places of education should be kept out of politics," Koshal added. (ANI)
