Congress mocks BJP's ''acche din'' over JNU unrest

New Delhi: Taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress on Wednesday said that the ruling party was defending the untoward activities done by its party members and targeting the Jawaharlal Nehru ​University Students` Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar, who spoke against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.

Congress leader Digvijay Singh tweeted:

 

Umar Khalid has been identified as the man behind the incident at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus.

Earlier, the Delhi Police submitted a four-page report on its alleged crackdown on a group of protesting JNU students on February 9 to the Ministry of Home Affairs, and claimed that Democratic Students Union (DSU) activists led by Umar Khalid raised anti-national slogans after they were denied to broadcast a pro-Afzal Guru documentary.

 

During the protest, DSU activists, led by Umar Khalid, began shouting anti-India slogans and singing songs eulogising Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhatt.

However, the report said that Kanhaiya Kumar didn`t raise anti-national slogans but was just standing with DSU activists and Umar Khalid, who has been absconding since then.
