The Students’ Union of the Delhi School of Social Work (DSSW), the alma mater of tainted BJP leader Kapil Mishra, has distanced itself from the party’s political candidate in a statement that reads, “Mr. Kapil Mishra, you don’t deserve to be called a DSSW Alumni.”

Now known as the Department of Social Work (DSW), the DSSW is known for its unwavering focus on social development specifically on the development of the marginalised communities- be it the minority communities, women, children, vulnerable and backward caste groups, elderly, persons with disability, persons affected by HIV/ AIDS, LGBT communities or those affected by disaster.

In its statement, the DSSW writes, “In one way, we have a glorious past and on the other hand we also have a blot, such as our alumni Kapil Mishra, who has organized recent Delhi riots and incited mob to disturb communal harmony of the city.”

“We are ashamed of Kapil Mishra and also that he studied social work in our college. The image of our department and the social work profession has been tarnished due to his provocative acts and communal statements. We, DSSW fraternity, are against the hatred, violence and communalism spread by Kapil Mishra who has also maligned our profession,” the statement adds.

The Students’ Union of DSSW has demanded that the Delhi police arrest Kapil Mishra and strict against all those who perpetrated the Delhi violence.

The DSSW which was established in 1946 has made a notable contribution in social work throughout the Partition and the 1984 Sikh Riots. It has also given the country many social workers, activists, academicians and bureaucrats to the country who have worked hard to make a positive change in the country.

Their statement against Kapil Mishra is another push in the right direction – a call for justice to those who lost their lives and livelihoods due to Mishra’s incendiary speech.

The entire statement by the DSSW may be read below.

Adani Electric workers continue working without protective gear during Corona pandemic

Workers of Adani Electric were filmed by Union member, working without any protective gear on. Three hours later the same set of workers were filmed (after the first video went viral) by company officials. Surprisingly, now they have protective gear on and had a different story to tell about the absence of the gear earlier- perhaps in fear of losing their daily wages and jobs. We urge organisations and companies to ensure workers' safety during the Corona pandemic. Stand together in the fight against COVID-19.
