Social activist Seema Azad addresses SFS conference at PU posing as Sikh woman
How Seema entered the campus
- Seema came to the city on Thursday evening by bus and stayed at a teacher’s place in Sector 37 at night.
- At 8.30 am, Seema entered the north campus from Gate No. 3 where five police officials were deployed, but they failed to recognise her.
- Seema spent the whole day on the campus. She visited the Student Centre, roamed around hostels, went to the market on the campus and the park. Earlier, the plan was to take her to a hostel, but due to intense checking at hostels, the plan was changed by the SFS.
- Special duties were assigned to core SFS supporters to take her to various places to prevent her arrest on the campus.
- She had her breakfast in a department canteen and had chana-kulcha at the market on the campus.
- Half an hour before she was to address the SFS conference, she appeared as a Sikh woman.
- She came on an Activa scooter at the venue at 5.15 pm, 15 minutes prior to her address, and stayed on for five minutes after addressing the gathering.
Social activist Seema Azad today turned up at the venue of the SFS conference outside the PU Vice-Chancellor’s office in typical filmy style by posing as a Sikh woman. During the conference, the SFS announced that Kirti from Kurukshetra University would address the gathering.A woman in her mid-thirties, wearing a blue turban, khaki kurta and a pair of jeans, stood up from the gathering and start addressing the students on “Smash the rising head of fascism”, the theme of the conference.
Before Seema addressed the gathering, the SFS announced that as Seema was not allowed to attend the conference, she had sent her handwritten letter to be read out to the students. Later, she was called to address the gathering.“Student parties should connect themselves with social issues, like the SFS did today, for the betterment of society,” Seema said. She shared her views on the Russian Revolution with the students and its importance.In her 18-minute address, Seema spoke on the theme of the conference.Interestingly, four ABVP supporters had doubts that the woman who was introduced as Kirti was actually Seema, but since they were not sure, they could not do anything. She left the venue on an Activa scooter with an SFS supporter without being noticed by the police.
After security personnel came to know that Seema had turned up to address the conference, they started asking each other how she looked like as none of them had seem her.
ABVP supporters, however, told mediapersons that they were successful in their move against Seema Azad as she was able to address the gathering only for a few minutes, that too posing a Sikh Woman
