A day after the news of resignation of three ABVP office-bearers in JNU emerged, JNUSU Joint Secretary (ABVP), Saurabh Sharma told ANI that the organisation has not received any official resignation from the students.

The three students of JNU had announced their resignation from ABVP citing “difference of opinion” on the “current JNU incident” among other issues. Criticising the Centre for “unleashing oppression on the student community”, they said they cannot be the “mouthpiece of such a government”.
