Students resolve to remove Chidambaram
Narendra Ch | 13 Mar 2012

The worst thing is that the then Finance Minister P. Chidambaram is not taking the responsibility and resigning from his post. YAC and ABVP together demanded immediate resignation of P. Chidambaram.

Youth Against Corruption (YAC) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) produced a joint struggle against corruption at Parliament of India. Demanding immediate resignation of
Home Minister P. Chidambaram, issuing of floating warrant against those having accounts in foreign banks and enact stringent laws to curb rampant corruption in NGO and private sector, YAC and ABVP activists from Delhi and surrounding states in large numbers gathered for protest at Jantar Mantar. The rally started from Deendayal Upadhaya Marg and headed towards Jantar Mantar.

The public has been continuously deceived by the Congress led UPA government and the aggression in the students fraternity was visible. Raising slogans like “P. Chidambaram Istifa do” and “Videsho me jama Kala Dhan Wapas Lao” the procession moved towards the scheduled venue. Addressing the activists ABVPs National General Secretary Umesh Dutt said about the cancellation of 122 licenses by the Supreme Court has made it clear that there has been a serious malfunctioning in the allocation of 2G spectrum that incurred a loss of 1.76 thousand crores. The worst thing is that the then Finance Minister P. Chidambaram is not taking the responsibility and resigning from his post. YAC and ABVP together demanded immediate resignation of P. Chidambaram.

National convener of YAC, Sunil Bansal attacked the corrupt UPA government for ignoring the plight of the common man and focussed on the issuing of floating warrant against those having accounts in foreign banks and declaring the black money as national asset. YAC’s National co-convener Vishnudutt Sharma emphasised on the indispensable need for enacting strict laws that could curb the prevailing corruption in NGO as well as private sector. ABVP Delhi State Secretary Rohit Chahal presided the session. After the public meeting, delegation handed over the memorandum to Honourable President of India.

Followed by this, activists in large numbers moved towards the Parliament. There was also a clash between the activists and police in which few activists were injured. YAC and ABVP demanding to fulfil its three fold demands has threatened the government that if the demands were not fulfilled the nationwide anti-corruption movement will be intensified.

ABVP National Organising Secretary Sunil Ambekar, National Secretary Shreerang Kulkarni and Anil Kumar, National co-convener of YAC Dr. Rashmi Singh were also present on the occassion.
