In a joint statement, the three leaders said have decided to quit ABVP as they have serious differences over the way the NDA government was handling the issue, adding there is a difference between “interrogation and crushing ideology and branding entire Left as anti-national.”

They also expressed deep anguish over assault on mediapersons and JNU students and teachers in Patiala House court complex on Monday as well as attack on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar in the same court complex on Wednesday, alleging that the government was “legitimising” the action of right wing fascist forces.

“We can’t be mouthpiece of such a govt. which has unleashed oppression on student community” Narwal added in the Facebook post.

The JNU students are on strike demanding Kumar’s release. He was arrested on Friday last in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy registered over holding of the event at the varsity during which anti-India slogans were alleged to have been raised.

Members of the ABVP had objected to holding of the event following which vice-chancellor had withdrawn the permission for it. However, the organisers had gone ahead with the event.
