BJP MLA Gyandev Ahuja Says Rapes Happen In JNU Everyday


Gyandev Ahuja, the BJP MLA from Ramgarh in Rajasthan's Alwar district, best known for his claim that 3,000 condoms and 500 abortion injections were used in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) everyday, came out with new revelations about the university on Wednesday morning. He has now said that “rapes” occur in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) daily.

Expressing his reservations about the Gandhi family, he also said that, "The statues of members of the Nehru-Gandhi family should be brought down, then people will spit on them."

"I stand by what I said. Rapes happen daily in JNU. It is hub of criminal activities," Ahuja reiterated to ANI.

In February this year, a group of JNU students were accused of raising anti-national slogans at an event to commemorate the death of Afzal Guru, who was hanged in 2013 for his role in the 2001 Indian Parliament attack. In the wake of the event, some students, including the JNU student union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested and charged with sedition.

At the time, Ahuja had said that 3,000 condoms and 500 abortion injections along with 2,000 bottles of alcohol, more than 10,000 cigarette butts and 4,000 bidi parts, and over 50,000 bones, small and big, were to be found everyday at JNU campus.
