The cancelled performances are: SGTB Khalsa college's play 'Trump Card', Dyal Singh college's 'Jokistaan'; Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce's 'sawal to uthega (questions will be raised)'; and Gargi College's 'Main, Kashmir aur aap? Main Manipur' (I'm Kashmir, and you? I'm Manipur).
"Seven teams were scheduled to take part in the street play festival and perform on their respective subjects. However, our administration asked us to present the scripts to them, which has never happened before.
"After presenting the scripts, we were asked to cancel performances of four plays as their subject was related to nationalism, freedom of speech and the evergreen issue of Kashmir," a member of the drama society said on the condition of anonymity. College principal PC Tulsiyan said it was student's decision to cancel the plays.
"The administration did not cancel the plays but Ramjas students who are members of the drama society did it themselves. We had just advised them to not include anything which may hamper the peaceful atmosphere at the college," he said.
The clashes took place after an invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar titled 'Culture of Protests' was withdrawn by the college authorities following ABVP's opposition.
