Why did a violent clash break out on JNU Campus?

According to the media reports, JNUSU has alleged that ABVP’s members started the violence by resorting to ‘"muscle power and goondaism" to create a ruckus, manhandling the staff over-serving of non-vegetarian food at the college hostel. ABVP members have refuted these allegations and instead accused “Leftist” students groups of instigating violence by disrupting a pooja and havan organised by students on the occasion of Ram Navami.

ABVP's JNU wing president Rohit Kumar has issued a statement accusing left groups for instigating violence. Mr Kumar has said that “"Left & NSUI workers create ruckus during pooja in the university on the occasion of Ram Navami. There is no angle of non-veg. They have a problem with programs on the occasion of Ram Navami."

On the other hand, All India Students Association (AISA) national president N Sai Balaji has shared a video s from this Twitter account showing ABVP students creating a ruckus in Kaveri hostel by stopping residents from consuming non-vegetarian food.
