Budaun: A Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader has announced a prize money of Rs 5 lakh for cutting off the tongue of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar.

 

Kanhaiya was arrested on February 12 on sedition charge and was released from the Tihar jail on March 03 after the Delhi High Court granted him interim bail for six months.

 

The announcement was made by Kuldeep Varshnay, the BJYM district president, Budaun district, Uttar Pradesh.

He said Kanhaiya was speaking against the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since he was released on bail. 

President of district unit of BJP, Harish Shakya, said that the party has expelled Varshnay for six years.

Shakya told reporters that party has nothing to do with Varshnay's controversial statement.

"Varshnay's statement is his personal one and the party has nothing to do with it...He has been expelled from the primary membership of the party for giving such a statement without the consent of party office bearers," he said.

Shakya stated that a notice to remove Varshnay from the post had been issued six months ago, and Ankit Maurya was made working president in his place.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union president on Friday said that Hyderabad University research scholar Rohith Vemula was his icon and not Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

 

Condemning the February 9 event on the campus where anti-national slogans were raised, Kanhaiya said: "We strongly condemn what happened at the university on February 9. It's for the court to decide if that was 'raaj droh' (sedition) or not. We've full faith in the judiciary and the constitution."

 

Kanhaiya also asserted that JNU students could never be anti-national.
