HYC against ABVP and WOSY for using NEHU

Shillong, Apr 2: The Hynniewtrep Youth Council (HYC) had warned ABVP and WOSY of using NEHU to further its political cause and to create communal tension.

In a statement, HYC education secretary Enlang Sawian said, “We warn ABVP and WOSY to tread very carefully and not to use NEHU for advancing their political agendas and to create communal tensions inside the University. We will not allow people or groups with vested interests to spoil the name of NEHU and our State as a whole as NEHU has traditionally not allowed such groups to take part in the students’ politics till date. And we would like to see that the status quo remains for years to come.”


“We urge upon each and every student of NEHU to be very vigilant and take action necessary to ensure that the university is free from the divisive and petty political agendas of these types of groups or people,” he said.

He said that the HYC-CEC has taken a strong exception to the recent events unfolding in NEHU.

“We are informed that the ABVP, a students’ wing of the BJP is trying its best to infiltrate in the campus by using its outfit called the World Organisation of Students and Youths (WOSY) as well as holding of programme in collaboration with the RSS like the one which was stopped by HYC recently. The so-called celebration of the festival of holi inside the campus by WOSY in collaboration with ABVP/RSS members is nothing but an attempt to communalise the festival and also to politicise the same. In all these years, the students and faculty members as well as staff of NEHU have been holding such festivals in their individual capacity and there was no objection. But celebrating such festival with a motive to communalise and politicise the same cannot be accepted by HYC,” Sawian said.
