Rahul Gandhi attacks RSS-affiliated ABVP for insulting MP professor
Congress President Rahul Gandhi has criticised activists of the right-wing student body ABVP after a professor tried to touch their feet after they labelled him ‘anti-national’, in Madhya Pradesh
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday criticised activists of the right-wing student body Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for insulting a senior government college professor in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh.
"A teacher was insulted by student leaders of ruling party in Mandsaur. A professor is touching the feet of the students who are threatening them. What kind of sacraments is being followed in the country where teachers are regarded as God. What kind of treatment is this...," Rahul tweeted, while sharing the video of the incident.
According to news reports, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-affiliated student organisation ABVP activists called the government college professor in Mandsaur "anti-national" when he asked them not to raise slogans outside his classroom.
A video that emerged on Thursday showed the professor, apparently upset, running after ABVP activists to touch their feet even as they tried to stop him.
