Stop Politicization: Save HCU Campus

Nationwide demonstration on 31st Jan & 1 Feb against tactics of Rahul Gandhi

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Prishad condemns the brutal lathicharge on protesting students earlier today in Hyderabad; hundreds of students were peacefully holding HCU March on demand to “Stop Politicisation: Save HCU Campus” and to raise voice against Rahul Gandhi’s vicious campaign of politicizing the campus.

ABVP calls for two days of nationwide protest on 31st January & 1st February to defend the sanctity of higher education institutions from the filthy caste politics of the Congress Party.

National General Secretary of ABVP, Shri Vinay Bidre questioned Congress’s agenda to politicize higher educational institutions which is being led by its Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhi.

The suicide of the young student Rohith Vemula is indeed sad and a serious incident, but then this should not be construed as a battle between the dalits and the non-dalits. In reality, this is actually a part of the broader anti-nationalist agenda of the leftists to sow the seeds of disharmony and destroy the very fabric of liberalism and democracy that has been the hallmark of this civilization.

It’s precisely because of ABVP’s nationalist work, creative campus activism and unflinching dedication for student welfare, social welfare and national welfare, students have given a wide berth to leftist ideals. Thus, given the fact that their support base is fast-dwindling, the left in a bid to capture power has taken recourse to violent means. This has indubitably struggle between the anti-nationalist, embattled left and the nationalist organizations like ABVP.

Because of ABVP's age-old crusade to secure the rights of the dalits and the underprivileged, the so-called left-Dalit ideology has been set at nought. To this end, ABVP’s works especially in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana where ABVP has long run pro -nationalist and equality campaigns for dalits has been a grand success. So the embattled left in its efforts to salvage the last vestiges of its dying reputation has gone for a new ruse and that is to appropriate the legacy of Ambedkar.

These leftists try to misappropriate the legacy of Ambedkar by trying to destroy the very constitution that he had framed.

These leftists have not only supported Yakub Meman but also support his activities. What comes as a jolt of surprise for any sane-minded individual is the fervor with which the lefties try to portray Yakub as a hero rather than a turncoat and an anti-national. In fact, these lefties have organized movements in memory of Yakub and has coined the slogan: “How many Yakub you will kill, Because Every household will produce Yakub.”

Death should not be politicize. But, Leftists are trying to obfuscate the whole issue and make it murkier by trying to portray Rohith as a Dalit and Susheel, the ABVP activist as a non-Dalit, and trying to present the issue as a battle between Dalits and non-Dalits. The ABVP contends that Rohit belongs to the Vaddera community and certificates which claim that he is a Dalit are false.

Both students belong to the backward category. While Susheel is from the Munuru-Kapu community, Rohith is from the Vaddera community. So, the claim of this being an atrocity by non-Dalits against Dalits is a conspiracy of communists.

It is well -known that Dr. Babasaheb Ambekar never supported anti-national thought. Amedakarite movements are always imbued with the values of patriotism and nonviolence. That is why other organizations which are working in the Hyderabad Central University like Dalit Student Union (DSU) also criticized the ASA’s acts of supporting Yakub Meman on its Facebook post.

Leftists are spreading lies in educational institutions by misusing the name of Dr. Babasaheb Amedkar. We, as the citizens of this country, need to start a pro-active debate in campuses and society on how many poor people and Dalit students will become victim of these conspiracies by leftist forces.

Thus its incumbent on all responsible citizens to expose such anti-nationalist activities. Thus, its with this intention in mind to expose the fake liberalism of these so-called progressives that ABVP calls upon all the citizens of this country, particularly the youth to come forward and following in the ideals of the persons like Swami Vivekananda, Dr. Ambedkar carve out an inclusive agenda that would involve the poor, the dalits and the underprivileged and thus help us to realise the nationalist ideals of Ambedkar on his 125th birth anniversary.

7 Days National Wide Campaign

We ABVP are going to start up the open debate and seminars on the issue in all the central and state universities in the country. Our workers will distribute posters, pamphlets among the students of all universities. We will also hold online discussions in the Online Media to show the truth. Let’s student debate on the issue.
