BHU student demanding revival of students union, thrashed at Modi's event
According to reports, the student named Ashutosh Singh was raising slogans demanding the revival of students union during the centenary year convocation ceremony when he was thrashed by some people.
"The students union has been prohibited since 1997. The students here are suppressed and not allowed to raise their voice," he said."Modiji hum chhatron ki awaz suniye (Modiji listen to us students)," he said.
Modi was leaving the venue when Singh shouted. Police later on escorted Singh out of the venue.
Meanwhile, Modi at the event urged the youth to take pride in India's culture and said: "Yoga had existed through the ages but it was only when Indians owned it with great pride that the UN announced an International Yoga Day on June 21."
