New Delhi: On Sunday, BJP president Amit Shah congratulated the DU students after Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) won on all seats in the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) elections and made its comeback at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) after a period of 14 years.

Amit Shah said, “I congratulate all the students of DU and JNU for the ABVP’s win. Its win at two prominent universities of the country is a reflection of the youth of the country towards a nationalist ideology based on ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ and Antyodaya.”

The BJP leader stated, “So this ABVP win reflects the thinking of the youth of the country.”

The comeback of RSS-affiliated ABVP by clinching the students’ union joint secretary’s post, is a major boost to the BJP. Earlier, ABVP’s Sandeep Mahapatra had won a post by a vote’s margin in the JNU elections in 2001 as the president.

The ABVP won all the seats in Delhi University Students Union elections on Saturday.

BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday said that the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was “very necessary” and added that the government was working on building a consensus with stakeholders in the northeast.

Addressing the media here, Amit Shah also said that the government had brought the bill after much thought and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was holding consultations with various people to address the opposition to the issue.

“There are two sides of a coin. There are decisions that some like and some don’t… The fate of huge number of refugees can’t be kept hanging in the balance and we are firm on it,” he said.

Asked what would be the BJP’s stand if suggestions come to withdraw the Bill as it has created unrest in the entire northeast, Amit Shah said: “Home Minister is holding discussions with political parties. Discussion with some parties have already taken place. If consensus emerges, we will definitely move ahead but the Citizenship Bill is highly necessary for the country.”

The Bill seeks to grant Indian citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who entered India before December 31, 2014.
