New Delhi: A poor pan vendor outside the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus is facing the heat as he is stuck in between the ongoing tussle of Right and Left wing, which is now costing him his livelihood. A WhatsApp forward message, which is purportedly going viral on social media, states “Boycott SanjayPanshop.”

Under the “boycott trend,” students are asking fellow students to boycott a panwallah near Hilltop. They claimed that he is a Sanghi (Right wing follower) and allegedly helped the masked goons in attacking the JNU students.
