Union Minister Babul Supriyo heckled by 'Naxalite' students of JU in presence of the VC
Babul Supriyo was heard saying "do not touch my body" to the students, many of them wearing head band and claimed they were from Naxalite group
Union Minister Babul Supriyo was today heckled and was now literally under siege by a section of students when he arrived to attend a function being organised by the ABVP in the Jadavpur University campus.
Even attempts from vice-chancellor Suranjan Das and his deputy and other teachers failed to convince the agitating students, who shouted slogans "go back go back Babul Supriyo," who also defied to return unless being allowed to attend the scheduled function inside the campus.
Babul Supriyo was heard saying "do not touch my body" to the students, many of them wearing head band and claimed they were from Naxalite group.
At one time Babul Supriyo fell on the floor when push and pull he faced by the students, who were also in assault mood.
Time and again the union minister warned them not to touch his body and allow him to go to the function.
The Union minister for environment and climate change was being gheraoed for nearly two hours even efforts from VC Suranjan Das failed to convinced the agitating students, who are determined not to allow the minister to attend the function.
Babul Supriyo said, he was here as a singer for performance of the day where local artiste Agni Mitra faced similar protests.
The stalemate continued when the report came in as the union minister was gheraoed facing go back slogans and he defying saying he would attend the function.
