The JNUSU council meeting, which went on till late Wednesday night, saw JNU joint secretary Saurabh Sharma demanding the resignation of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and general secretary Rama Naga.

The JNUSU council meeting, which went on till late Wednesday night, saw JNU joint secretary Saurabh Sharma demanding the resignation of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and general secretary Rama Naga. Mr Sharma, who proposed the resolutions to be read and voted before the council, alleged that Mr Kumar, along with other leftist members, did not read his resolutions and even abused him.

Mr Sharma said, “Whatever happened in the meeting was a clear violation of the JNUSU constitution and is an example of stifling of dissent. Kanhaiya tried to abuse me with a malicious campaign that I am misbehaving and flirting with women councillors.”

The resolution, which was passed in the council meeting, was proposed by JNUSU vice-president Shehla Rashid Shora saying they do not accept the “spurious findings” of the inquiry report which was passed by a majority. However, with regard to the agenda of the council meeting, Mr Sharma and other ABVP councillors also proposed some resolutions in the meeting that stated, “JNUSU welcomes the Delhi high court judgement on Kanhaiya’s bail plea and shall abide by it. We are disappointed with the report of the HLEC as it fails to indict the offenders of the February 9 incident. We believe the committee has come under the pressure of leftist teacher as well as student organisations in the campus as well as political forces from outside like Rahul Gandhi, Sitaram Yechury etc.
