NEW DELHI: Swaraj India leader Yogendra Yadav today alleged that Delhi College of Arts and Commerce (DCAC) has "postponed" an event on dissent that he was to address.

"Another DU college chickens out! I was to speak on Meaning & Significance of Dissent at DCAC Youth meet tomorrow. Just told it's postponed!" Yadav tweeted.

He claimed that he received an email yesterday notifying a change in the two-day event that was scheduled to begin today.

"Have learnt that (BJP leader) Subramanyam Swamy is speaking in the same college on 'media on trial' on 9th.

Restrictions only for those opposed to govt?" he tweeted.

His allegations come amid a debate on free speech in the country.

Cancellation of an event at Ramjas college had sparked a row, which grew following BJP leader Shazia Ilmi's allegation that Jamia had cancelled an event on triple talaq.
