Indian Student Alleges Hate Campaign In UK: 'Can't accept India's Success'

He claimed that a 'well-planned' campaign against Satyam was started twelve hours before the election. In an attempt to malign him and his campaign, someone allegedly attempted to link him to the Bharatiya Janata Party and call him a "fascist".

The student, who is originally from Pune, has been working as a trainee in the Bombay High Court for the past few months to gain experience. He is scheduled to finish his Master of Laws program at the London School of Economics later this year.

London School of Economics student Satyam Surana, who rose to fame last year when he defied radicals attacking the Indian High Commission in the UK by flying the tricolor from the street, is now alleging that he was the target of vicious attacks and smear campaigns during this year's student union elections.

He claimed that a 'well-planned' campaign against Satyam was started twelve hours before the election. In an attempt to malign him and his campaign, someone allegedly attempted to link him to the BharatiyaJanata Party and call him a "fascist".

The student, who is originally from Pune, has been working as a trainee in the Bombay High Court for the past few months to gain experience. He is scheduled to finish his Master of Laws program at the London School of Economics later this year.

His nomination for general secretary, filed shortly after, and the announcement of the London StockExchange elections in February or early March marked the beginning of his full narrative of events.

We discovered that between March 14 and 15, my posters were being pulled down and damaged. We reported our complaint to the appropriate authorities. After we replaced the posters on March 16th, we discovered that several of them had been defaced. My face was covered with crosses and had the phrase "Anyone but Satyam" written on it in graffiti. As Satyam put it in an interview with ANI, "I was cancelled out."On March 17, in the afternoon, messages were sent to every LSE group. There are law school and Indian community groups. "This Satyam Surana is a supporter of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he is a fascist person, an Islamophobia, and a transphobe," according to the scriptures. He claimed that because the comments were so seditious and polarizing, they were directed towards the Indian government and the existing system.

According to Satyam, the radical elements also took screenshots of his posts on social media, where he only showed support for the BJP administration, under the username X. However, someone was attempting to use his words for evil when they called him a "fascist." The following statements were made by Satyam to justify his actions.

He also made it clear that his manifesto covered the real problems the university was facing rather than using political jargon. This campaign of animosity destroyed his prospects even though he had a great deal of support initially.
