Young leader Aishe Ghosh who grabbed nation’s attention with her bold and dynamic stand during the JNU attacks met with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday in Kerala House, New Delhi. The JNSU Chief was seen all smiles while the senior leader blessed her and expressed solidarity with the students’ protest on the campus. Sources present at the meet stated that the duo had a short talk as the CM enquired about the health condition of the injured students admitted in the hospital. “CM also asked details about the vandalism and said that this is a usual style of the RSS to attack people by assaulting them,” added the reports. Aishe was accompanied by Nidheesh Narayanan, SFI central secretariat member.
Noting the occasion, Pinarayi gifted Aishe ‘Halla Bol, the Death and Life of Safdar Hashmi’, a book written by Sudhanva Deshpande. Safdar Hashmi, a communist playwright and director is best known for his work with street theatre in India. Safdar was also the leader of Jana Natya Manch (Janam), a theatre group and was attacked by the anti-social goons while performing the play in Delhi. He died the following day in the hospital.
Taking to his official Facebook handle, Piarayi shared his views on meeting Aishe. “The campus has shown a relentless fighting spirit. The iconic fight has been led by Aishe Ghosh, the JNUSU President and SFI leader. She has come back to lead the fight with a fractured head. In her eyes, the strength of JNU’s fight is visible. All wishes in the fight for justice.” Talking to the media, Aishe thanked the Kerala government for extending solidarity and standing tall against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
