Priyanka Gandhi Condemns Allahabad University And BJP For Banning Student Union On University Campus

Allahabad: After around a fortnight, since the authorities of Allahabad University (AU) decided to replace the student union on the campus by student council, general secretary of the Congress party, Priyanka Gandhi has raised her voice against the decision of the AU authorities.

AU authorities have not only replaced the student union on the campus but also blacklisted several student leaders of the campus, who have opposed the decision of the varsity authorities.

This also included the vice president of the student union, Akhilesh Yadav of NSUI (national student union of India). Yadav was the lone office bearer of the union from NSUI.

In fact he was the first NSUI member to be the part of the union in the past 13 years, since AU was made a central university in the year 2005.

In her tweet, posted on Tuesday morning, Priyanka has said that AU has blacklisted the sitting vice president of NSUI just because he was opposing the decision of dissolving the concept of student union on the campus.

“BJP sarkar to khud chunn ker aayi hai, magar chatron ke chunav aur unki awaz se itna darti kyun hai? Yeh tanashahi nahi hai to kya hai?” (This BJP government has come to power via direct elections but is afraid of the student union elections and the voices of students. Is this not dictatorship), she questions.

Akhikesh is a student of BA final year and has been active against the administration’s anti-student policies like non availability of books in library, suicide of student Rajnikant Yadav, non-availability of hostels, non-availability of medical facilities to students, against the allegations of sexual harassment on vice chancellor and professors, dissolution of students’ union and proposal of students’ council.

Yadav was served notice when he was protesting against the dissolution of students’ union.

“I was targeted by the vice chancellor as I stood aggressively against irregularities done by him and his office.” (ToI)
