The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) General Secretary, Nidhi Tripathi, termed the January 5 violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) hostel campus a conspiracy strategised and planned well in advance. Tripathi termed the violence a “Naxal Attack” on JNU. The ABVP office bearer was addressing a press conference, on Monday, when she levelled some serious charges on the perpetrators of the JNU violence.
Tripathi refuted the claims by leftist and Congress backed students’ union that the students staged protests against fee hike in the central government backed varsity. “It will be wrong to call the movement against fee hike, a student protest. It was a Naxal Attack on JNU,” claimed Tripathi in her press conference.

While ABVP office bearer made this sensational revelation, she also highlighted that the blue print of the January 5 JNU violence was designed on October 28, 2019. “Discussions are being held on JNU violence but it is restricted to January 5 only. It will have to be seen that the violence is not confined to January 5 only. It will have to be seen that what transpired on campus from October 28, 2019 to January 5, 2020,” Tripathi was quoted as saying in the press conference by news agency ANI.
