New Delhi: ABVP and NSUI activists clashed with each other outside Art Faculty of the prestigious Delhi University over the Ram Janmabhoomi seminar on Saturday.
The student’s wings of political parties started exchanging blows after the previous one agitated against the ongoing seminar on Ram Janmabhoomi row.
Amid protests buy NSUI who were raising slogans and holding placards, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy went ahead with the seminar on the construction of Ram temple.
“Construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya is ‘mandatory’ for revival of our culture. We have started and we will not give up until it is made but nothing will be done forcibly and against the law. We have full faith that we will win in the court,” he said in his inaugural address at the two-day seminar.
Swamy also claimed that former PM Rajiv Gandhi had promised him of support for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.
“Rajiv Gandhi had personally told me that Ram Mandir will be built and whenever he will get an opportunity he will also help and the first help he did was that despite party opposition, he started the television serial on Ramayana which created a new excitement in public,” he said.
“Suppose we don’t do it this year, the next year is the election and then we have to do it the following year which is 2018. Then you will say it is for the Lok Sabha elections. Every year there is an election. So, we can’t stop our activities just because there is going to be an election,” Swamy told ANI.
NSUI have alleged that the ruling BJP government is misusing their power to saffronise the central university.
