Watch video: JNU at it again, students burn PM Modi's effigy in campus on Dussehra
While the whole country celebrated Dussehra on Tuesday which was marked by burning of effigies of Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif and co-founder of LeT Hafiz Saeed, the students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) yet again chose to remain controversial.

In a shocking video posted on social media allegedly by NSUI students of JNU, the students are seen venting their ire on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a few others including yoga guru Baba Ramdev.

During this incident perpetrated by alleged Congress-backed students of the National Students Union of India (NSUI), the students burnt an effigy depicting PM Modi as Ravana on the JNU campus.

Along with PM Modi's picture pasted on the main head of Ravana's effigy, the other heads had pictures of BJP President Amit Shah, Baba Ramdev, Sadhvi Pragya and Asaram Bapu among a few others. The effigy was burned near the famous Saraswati Dhaba on the JNU campus on Tuesday night.

According to reports, the students were protesting against Modi government's failure on various promises and also against attacking and deliberately targeting of educational institutions by the authorities.

These JNU students carrying placards also indulged in sloganeering against PM Modi and the Rashtriya Sawayamsevak Sangh (RSS). As per Sunny Dhiman, who contested for the President's post in JNUSU elections this year, the protest was against the failure of the present government.

Dhiman said, "This effigy was burnt to mark the protest against the failure of the government at all fronts. The protest also marks JNU administration's decision to issue notice against Youth Forum for Discussions and Welfare Activities (YFDA) for protesting the atrocities on Muslims and Dalits in the name of cow protection. We think, the university did it on perusal of government, and it's particularly targeting YFDA because it's a group mainly constituting Muslim students."
