NEW DELHI: An ABVP delegation today met Lt Governor Anil Baijal over alleged "anti-national activities" in DU and JNU, even as the Congress student wing NSUI approached the police over "provocative" posters put up in DU's North Campus by the RSS-backed body.     

The two actions came against the backdrop of the recent violence in Ramjas college where ABVP and Left-affiliated AISA clashed over cancellation of a seminar invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid.     

"We took a delegation to meet the LG seeking his intervention into the issue of anti-national activities taking place in JNU and DU since a year. We submitted a memorandum to him demanding strict action against those who indulged in such activities," ABVP's National Media Convener, Saket Bahuguna said.   

 The Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India (NSUI) objected to "provocative" posters put up by ABVP at various places in DU's North Campus.     

The ABVP had yesterday put up the posters with photographs purportedly showing "violence perpetrated by the Communists" in various parts of the country.     

'DU against intellectual terrorism', 'Rapist AISA go back', 'DU against anti-nationals' were a few of the slogans written on the posters which drew sharp reactions from the Left-affiliated groups.     

The NSUI today approached police as well as the varsity administration demanding that the posters be removed.     

Meanwhile, the Left-backed Students Federation of India (SFI) and All India Students Federation of India (AISF) staged separate protests today against ABVP members for their alleged involvement in inciting the violence at Ramjas college.
