New Delhi: Ahead of the students’ union polls on Friday, the Jawaharlal Nehru University’s (JNU) presidential debate was held on Wednesday night amid minor clash, booing, and slogans of “Jai Bhim,” “Lal Salaam,” and “Vande Mataram.”

At the much sought-after event, the candidates raked up national issues like abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and mob lynching, the NRC, and even the forest fire in Amazon.

 

The issues in Jawaharlal Nehru University’s were also raised but the speeches for a major part focussed on highlighting the achievements of the government in case of the ABVP candidate and their criticism by the opposition parties.

Priyanka Bharti of Chhatra RJD and BAPSA candidate Jitendra Suna drew the largest cheers from the crowd and were also cheered by their opponents on some issues targeting the RSS-BJP. ABVP candidate Manish Jangid started his speech with slogans of “Bharat Mata ki Jai” and “Vande Mataram.”

NSUI candidate Prashant Kumar condemned Mr Jangid for referring to the sedition row and said the matter is “sub judice.”
