NEW DELHI: Vexed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Gyandev Ahuja’s bizarre statement claiming that the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was a hub for sex and drugs, party president Amit Shah has summoned Ahuja.

The BJP MLA from Ramgarh in Rajasthan's Alwar district had claimed that those studying in JNU are involved in activities including "sex and drugs" among others.

Listing out the "illicit" activities been conducted at JNU, Ahuja claimed, "More than 10,000 butts of cigarettes and 4,000 pieces of beedis are found. 50,000 big and small pieces of bones are found. 2,000 wrappers of chips and namkeen are found, and so are 3,000 used condoms. They commit misdeeds with our sisters and daughters there. And 500 used contraceptive injections are also found."

He also alleged that "students are mostly found taking drugs after 8pm inside the campus. Those studying in JNU are not children, but parents of two children. They indulge in peace protests in the mornings and during the nights, they perform obscene dances," he added.

The BJP MLA's comments came during a march on Monday in Alwar against JNU students.
