AIPWA Secretary and Polit Bureau member of CPI (ML) Kavita Krishnan took to her twitter account and said that this was a victory for the students of JNU over the RSS nexus. "This is more than a victory of the united Left, it's the victory of JNU students over a united Sanghi nexus out to abuse, demean, humiliate & destroy not only JNU but academics, activists, universities!" she tweeted.
