The right-wing organisations in Nagpur, particularly the Bajrang Dal, have taken up cudgels against JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is scheduled to address a public meeting to mark Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary in Nagpur on Thursday.

According to information, Kanhaiya, who has a strong Communist tilt, is said to participate in the meeting organised by Pragatisheel Chhatra Yuva Sangharsha Samiti (Progressive Students Youth Action Committee) on Thursday.

Though the programme was decided long time ago, the city is witnessing a strong opposition to the meeting, for the past two days.

Bajrang Dal city chief Rajkumar Gupta has vehemently opposed the meeting and termed Kanhaiya a traitor and that the Dal will never allow the meeting to be conducted in the city.

Chief of Youth Organisation Parshu Thakur demanded the cancellation of the meeting, as his organisation felt it would create chaos.

The Yuva Sanghatan claimed they will oppose the meeting democratically and will strive to get the meeting cancelled. Some women’s organisations, too, have opposed the meeting.

On the other hand, office-bearers of Pragatisheel Chatra Yuva Sangharsha Samiti, the organisers of the meeting, claimed that some organisations were unnecessarily making a big issue. One of the key organisers, Shyam Kale claimed that Kanhaiya has deep faith in the Indian Constitution and adheres to it. He claimed that Kanhaiya has done nothing wrong.
