A statue of Swami Vivekananda was vandalised inside the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Wednesday night. Objectionable messages were written on the statue targeting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other Hindutva symbols. It is not clear who defaced the statue, it is clear that the messages were directed at the BJP and its affiliates. The statue is situated on the right side of the administrative block opposite the statue of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The incident has come to light just a day after students entered the JNU administration block and left grafiti targetting vice-chancellor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar.
