WHILE MAHILA Congress organised a signature campaign at Rajwada demanding action against those guilty of killing Professor Harbhajan Singh Sabharwal, Youth Congress activists visited 10 colleges of Indore for the same purpose.

Youth Congress City unit president Devendra Singh Yadav, who organised the signature campaign, said that the administration is aware that students affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) were responsible for assaulting Prof Sabharwal of Ujjain, which ultimately led to his death. However, due to political pressure – ABVP being the student wing of the BJP - the administration was not taking any steps to arrest the accused.

The Youth Congress activists carried out the signature campaign at Arts and Commerce College, Christian College, Gujarati Commerce, Gujarati Science and Gujarati Girls’ College, Khalsa College, Vaishnav Commerce College, IKDC, Holkar Science College and New GDC.

The activists are also demanding that Prof Sabharwal be declared a martyr and his statue be installed at the Madhav College, Ujjain.

Yadav said that if action is not taken against the accused, Youth Congress activists would call for a strike in all colleges of the City soon.
