Babul Supriyo heckled at Jadavpur University

Updated 19 Sep 2019 08:36 PM

 Union Minister Babul Supriyo was heckled by a section of students of Jadavpur University during his visit to the campus to attend an event organised by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), here on Thursday.

Several slogan-shouting pro-Left students surrounded Supriyo as soon as he arrived and asked him to leave. He was headed to the K.P. Basu Memorial Hall where a freshers' welcome programme was scheduled.

"Babul Supriyo go back, go back", they shouted as the Asansol MP's bodyguards tried to throw a security ring around him.

Students holding red flags pushed and shoved Supriyo. His shirt was torn. A student was even seen pulling his hair. But the Minister refused to leave the campus. Such was the situation that Vice-Chancellor Suranjan Das had to intervene to prevent any untoward incident.

"You people are trying to provoke me, create a commotion. But you can't drive me out. Till the time you calm down, I won't go," Supriyo said.

The Vice-Chancellor tried to reason with students and requested Supriyo to come to his chamber. However, verbal duel between Supriyo and students continued.
