Amidst the ongoing unrest in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) over anti-national slogans, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA on Monday defamed the varsity and its students.
According to BJP MLA from Ramgarh in Rajasthan’s Alwar district Gyandev Ahuja, those studying in JNU are involved in activities including sex and drugs among others.
Listing out the statistics over the illicit activities been conducted at JNU, Ahuja said, “More than 10,000 butts of cigarettes and 4,000 pieces of beedis are found. 50,000 big and small pieces of bones are found. 2,000 wrappers of chips and namkeen are found, and so are 3,000 used condoms the misdeeds they commit with our sisters and daughters there. And 500 used contraceptive injections are also found.”
”Students are mostly found taking drugs after 8 p.m. inside the campus. Those studying in JNU are not children, but parents of two children. They indulge in peace protests in the mornings and during the nights, they perform obscene dance, he added.

On Monday, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy demanded that JNU be “purified” by shutting it down for four months to weed out “communists, jihadists and LTTE people”.
“There is only one way to purify JNU. Shut down the university for four months, question every student, especially those pursuing courses in political science and sociology who are extending their stay by several years while insulting the nation,” he said at a public function.
The BJP leader’s remarks came amid the raging row over an event on the campus to protest the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. Anti-national slogans were alleged to have been raised at the function and Guru hailed as a martyr.
