Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party government for having failed to arrest the ‘outsiders’ who allegedly raised anti-national slogans at February 9 event at Jawahar Lal Nehru University.
“BJP is most anti-national of all. Why is it shielding those who raised anti-national slogans?,” tweeted Kejriwal on Wednesday.
The latest attack on BJP by Kejriwal comes following the finding of a report by a JNU panel that the provocative slogans at the controversial February 9 event on JNU campus were raised by a group of ‘outsiders’.
Three students including JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar are facing sedition charges in the case related to the incident. While the Delhi police arrested three students --- Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya --- in the sedition case involving the incident, critics have questioned the current dispensation’s at the Centre for not cracking down on ‘outsiders’ who raised slogans demanding BJP’s efforts to form government in Jammu & Kashmir with the PDP.
Along with several leaders including Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, Kejriwal has also been booked on sedition charges by Hyderabad police acting on an order of a court based on complaint filed by lawyer Janardhan Goud.
