The Jawaharlal Nehru (JNU) administration cut off the electricity and internet connection of the students’ union office to stop the screening of the controversial BBC documentary on PM Narendra Modi. Despite strict instructions from the JNU administration, a group of students were not ready to budge from their stand of screening the document, after which this step was taken by the JNU administration. By the way, despite the power cut and internet connection, more than 100 students are watching the BBC documentary on their mobile phones and laptops. JNUSU has said that they are not screening the documentary, students are watching it (documentary) at their own level. After this, stones were pelted at students watching the documentary in the JNU campus. After this, the students took out a march raising slogans against ABVP and BJP.
Former JNUSU president and AISA national president N Sai Balaji told NDTV, “We were peacefully watching documentaries on our phones and laptops when ABVP students pelted stones at us. To ensure the safety of students, we are the main We have come from the gate side. We want the power supply to be restored, the police is not responding to our calls. We will not move from the gate until the power supply is restored.”
In fact, the JNU Students’ Union wanted to show a documentary made by BBC on PM Modi in the university today i.e. Tuesday night at 9 pm, while the JNU administration has not given its permission. The JNU administration had instructed the student union that disciplinary action would be taken if the documentary was screened. On this, the students’ union had questioned the JNU administration that by showing the documentary, which rules of the university are they violating? The students union has said that they are not spoiling the communal harmony by showing this documentary.
Let us tell you, on Friday, the Central Government had ordered to block tweets sharing the BBC documentary criticizing PM Modi. The tweets through which the YouTube link of the BBC documentary has been shared have also been blocked. The Ministry of External Affairs had described this BBC documentary as part of such propaganda which reflects the colonial mindset. Opposition leaders have fiercely targeted the Center on this issue. When Narendra Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, there were fierce riots there. Significantly, the committee constituted on the instructions of the Supreme Court to investigate the Gujarat riots had given a clean chit to Narendra Modi. The committee did not find any evidence against Modi in the case.
