Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged a protest at the Tripura Government College of Art and Craft on Wednesday over purported vulgarity in the idol of Goddess Saraswati being worshipped at the college premises by Students & Teachers of the said College.

Karyakartas of ABVP protested against the idol of Goddess Saraswati placed in the government institute at Lichubagan, claiming that it was “vulgar” and contrary to the spirit of Indian culture and religious sentiments, and compelled the institute authorities to drape the idol with a saree immediately stopping the Puja then & there.

“As we all know, today is Basant Panchami and Goddess Saraswati is worshipped all over the country. In the very morning, we all got news that in the Government Art and Craft College, the idol of Goddess Saraswati was sculptured in a very wrong and vulgar way . We instantly rushed to the location and stated our protest. We complelled the college authority to stop the worship there and forced the students to wrap a saree on the idol. We strongly protest against this type of initiative in any educational institution,” he said.

He further demanded Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha take strict action against the college authority.

“It’s our demand to the CM Dr Manik Saha to take strict action against the college authority and dismiss the principal too,” he added.
