TDN World Desk: Sparking fresh row, a road in JNU campus has been named after VD Savarkar.
The decision to name the road after the iconic Hindutva leader VD Savarkar was taken in November last year.
Speaking to News 18, JNUSU General Secretary Satish Chandra Yadav said, “The people who joined with colonial powers at the time of freedom movement are being given this treatment in JNU. We won’t accept it”.
Reacting to the naming of the road JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh said, “We can never ever accept apologists and stooges of the British who undermined our secular fabric. Let’s respect those who gave us our constitution.”
