Alleging that the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) had ‘emotionally blackmailed’ him to join the party, Sukhjot Singh joined back the Akhil Bhartiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP) on Wednesday as the campus president.
Leaders and members of ABVP held a press conference on Wednesday to state that NSUI members forced Sukhjot to join their party on the pretext that he would be given good responsibilities.
On August 12, Sukhjot had joined NSUI in the presence of the National president Roji John. Sukhjot had said, “I was with ABVP for five to six months. Though they had me as the campus president, nobody bothered to guide me while NSUI members helped me to take a stand.”
However, after getting back to his party, Sukhjot said, “I was under pressure since two days. The NSUI members had taken me to Kurukshetra, promising to make me meet Prakash Singh Badal, but nothing happened. Whatever I said yesterday, I said it under the pressure. I was always a member of ABVP, and will always be.”
Meanwhile, the other ABVP members claimed that NSUI is trying to influence all the innocent students of the university and are practising ‘gunda-raj’ on the campus.
NSUI president Manoj Lubana, however said, “Sukhjot has changed several parties. What should we say in this case? It was completely his decision to leave the party and join hands with us.”
