‘Cong must refrain from doing polics on JNU’

 The BJP urged Opposition parties to take down elements who are trying to break India on Saturday.

 
While talking to a news agency, part leader Siddharth Nath Singh, said that the Congress must avoid from doing politics on Jawaharlal Nehru University students' union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is in jail on sedition charges.
 
"They give respectability through their leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Sitaram Yechury, and Arvind Kejriwal ...we need to step them out also. Therefore the BJP has raised this. The Opposition parties should not give respectability to those who want to break India," he told ANI.
 
He added  that Kanhaiya's case is in court and it is the BJP stand to give a fair trial in the case.
 
Whoever found  guilty will be punished, regardless of whether it is Kanhaiya or somebody else and those who are not guilty will be spared. The Congress must not do politics on it, Singh said.
 
Kanhaiya is among the six JNU students who is currently in jail on sedition charges over a controversial February 9 event that marked the anniversary of the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. During the event anti-India slogans were also raised.
 
Five other students of same charges resurfaced on last Sunday after being missing a week earlier.
 
Two of them, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya  surrendered at the university campus on Tuesday night.
