NEW DELHI: Coming down heavily on the opposition for lambasting the government post the recent violent clashes in Ramjas College, Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday blamed the Congress and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for attempting to ruin the country’s peace and prosperity.

Naqvi said that the Congress, Left and Kejriwal now stand exposed before the nation. 

Naqvi also accused the trio of blowing the situation out of proportion in view of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

The students of Delhi University students yesterday staged a protest against the ABVP at the SGTB Khalsa College, in the North Campus.

Earlier on Monday, a ‘Tiranga’ march was organised by the ABVP to invoke nationalist sentiments on the campus.

Last week, the All India Students Association (AISA) and the ABVP engaged into a scuffle over cancellation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid’s talk at Delhi University’s Ramjas College.
