Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has told BJP MPs to be aggressive during debate in Parliament over the JNU issue, as per a media report.
AS per a report in NDTV, PM Modi made the comments at the BJP parliamentary party executive committee meeting on Tuesday.
On the other hand, BJP allies have also decided to aggressively counter Congress and the Left in Parliament over the JNU row and the Hyderabad university controversy.
BJP chief Amit Shah took the lead in briefing members of the parliamentary party executive and those of the NDA about the details of the JNU case, backing the party's nationalist pitch.
The briefing included how the NDA members should rake up incidents, including the alleged assault in JNU on army officials following the Kargil war, to buttress their arguments.
Sources said Shah, who had accused Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi of 'supporting traitors' in the JNU row, gave a sequence of events on the campus and how the accused students tried to present themselves as innocents by shooting another video on a different day, as per PTI.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, sources said, defended the case of sedition and noted that a Supreme Court judgement had said that slogans calling for disintegration of India amounted to such a charge.
He made these remarks in the meeting of BJP parliamentary party executive which was held before the NDA meet.
