New Delhi, Aug 31: The nationalism debate, sedition row at JNU and events like "eulogizing Yakub Menon" at Hyderabad Central University will be highlighted by RSS' student wing ABVP in its campaign for the upcoming Delhi University Student Union polls.
Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) which has been bagging the four crucial posts of the DUSU panel for last two years is aiming to complete a hatrick of its clean sweep in the keenly contested polls this year.
"The February 9 event at JNU should not be seen in isolation, but as a series of event by leftists. We will continue to oppose events which eulogize Yakub Menon or protest hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru," Saket Bahuguna, Media coordinator, ABVP said at a press conference.
"We will highlight these anti-national activities by left groups as bigger national issue during the DUSU polls and ABVP will continue to protest against them," he added. Construction of more hostels, passing of Room rent control act, special buses for DU students are some of the other issues on party's poll agenda.
The student outfit will release its official manifesto on September 5, four days before the varsity goes to polls.
DUSU is the representative body of the students from most colleges and faculties. Apart from DUSU, which is an umbrella council, each college also has its own students' union for which they hold separate elections.
The elections for the student body are scheduled for September 9 and the students' wings of various political parties have intensified their campaign.
