New Delhi: Members of a left wing students’ organisation on Wednesday staged a noisy protest against Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi’s visit to a Delhi University college.

Activists of All India Students Association tried to storm the venue where Modi was supposed to deliver his speech.

Holding banners and placards, they shouted anti-Modi slogans. They were protesting against Modi’s developmental model in Gujarat. They accused Modi of 2002 anti-Muslim riots in which 1200 people were killed.

Police had to use water cannons and batons to quell the crowd.

Modi, the hardline nationalist politician, was invited by the college to deliver the inaugural speech at an event.
