The Banaras Hindu University (BHU) campus on Saturday night witnessed violence by students who were lathicharged by the police, in an ugly turn of a protest against an alleged eve-teasing incident.
Earlier in the day, Gandhi thanked external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj for recognising Congress' "legacy" of IITs in her speech at the UN General Assembly on Saturday.
"Sushma ji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments' great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs," said Gandhi.
