Political dissent OK but can't accept anti-nationalism: Rajnath Singh at BJP meet

New Delhi: Addressing a meeting of the BJP's National Executive here on Sunday, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that his party will accept political dissent but not anti-nationalism.

His remarks come in the wake of the recent turmoil in JNU over anti-India sloganeering.

Singh made it clear that his government will welcome any criticism but “not against the nation”.

Referring to Modi's message to party workers, he said that the PM has told the workers that his government's only focus is "Vikaas" (development).
