The All India Students’ Association (AISA) activists Saturday held a protest as BJP chief JP Nadda came to Patna College, where he once studied. Raising slogans of “JP Nadda, wapas jao (go back)”, the protesting students demanded rollback of the National Education Policy of 2020, and grant of central status to Patna University.
During the protest, as students surrounded Nadda, security personnel pushed through the crowd for him to move out. The saffron party leader was part of an alumni programme at the college seminar hall.
Kumar Divyam, AISA state unit joint secretary, led the activists.
The NEP 2020 is “nothing but a promotion of graded inequality,” said the protesting students.
Meanwhile the protest was being seen by BJP leaders as a “major security breach” that was “allowed by police.”
BJP leaders said the police allowed the protesters to come near Nadda.
