Protests outside SRCC over Modi's visit








New Delhi, Feb 6 (IANS) Left-wing students outfits staged protests outside Delhi University's Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's visit. ABVP activists also thronged the site to support Modi.

The police resorted to lathi-charge and water cannons to disperse students of Left-wing unions who tried to pull down the barricades and gain entry into the college where Modi was addressing students.

Around 600 policemen, some of them in riot gear, tried to bring the situation under control.

Angry students shouted, "Modi go back!" Posters held up by protestors read: "Expose Modi!"

Meanwhile, Akhil Bharaitya Vidyarthi Parishad members raised slogans in praise of Modi.

"People of Gujarat have not got justice yet. How can Modi be welcomed when he had such a big role in the Gujarat riots? It is not all about development," Prashant Singh, a member of the All India Students' Federation, told IANS.

"The development model of Modi is needed in the entire country. He is the best leader and India needs people like him," Utkarsh Sahni, a student of DU's PGDAV college, said.

Many of the students belonged to the All India Students' Association, the Students Federation of India and the All India Students Federation -- all Left-wing unions.

Wearing black clothes and masks of ghosts, students crossed the barricade and shouted slogans against Modi outside the college.

Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) is the alma mater of many leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), including Arun Jaitley, Vijay Goel, Jagdish Mukhi and Vijay Jolly.

Modi's talk at the college was about "Emerging business models in the global scenario".
