AGRA: BJP MLA from Aligarh Dalveer Singh has made strong objections after his vehicle was not permitted to enter the AMU campus with a “party flag” on it.
The MLA's vehicle had gone to pick up his grandson, Vijay Kumar Singh from the varsity but was stopped by the staff at the main gate. Dalveer Singh said that the AMU proctorial team members asked his driver Guddu to remove the flag before entering the campus.
He claimed that his vehicle used to go to the campus for dropping and picking his grandson, but this was the first time when the employees had asked to remove the party flag from his vehicle.
He claimed that his driver was also abused by the university staff. Singh said, “I have informed the Registrar of the university about the incident and told him that they are unnecessary trying to vitiate the atmosphere by such attempts”. He said that cars of other political leaders also come to the university with their flags on it but his was purposely stopped.
“It shows their mentality that they are not only against the BJP but also against the Hindu community students,” he said, adding that recently SP city Abhishek was also attacked by students inside the campus.
Singh said, “I have informed the district magistrate and SSP too about this incident and will report this matter to Human Resource and Development Minister as well”. Singh’s driver Guddu has filed a police complaint into this regard.
When contacted, Registrar of the university, Abdul Hamid said that the matter is being inquired. He said the varsity’s notification regarding removal of political party's flag from the vehicle will be reviewed in the present circumstances. He, however, claimed that flags of other political were also removed from the vehicle while they were entering the campus today.
According to AMU officials, though the varsity’s notification of not allowing vehicles with party flags in the university campus was issued in August this year, it was implemented from today.
