The controversy over sloganeering at Jawahar Lal Nehru University at New Delhi reached Ludhiana with organisations protesting against those who have been arrested for the alleged seditious act.
Punjab Shiv Sena chairman Rajiv Tandon and Ludhiana district president Prince Sharma condemned the incident, stating that strict action should be taken against the students who had raised slogans at the university.
He said it was surprising that Congress party was supporting those who had raised such slogans.
Sharma said if action was not taken against the culprits, “Raising slogans against our own country would become a common thing in our country. There may be dissent among the students but they should not have raised slogans asking for destruction of India.”
