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 Students’ Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar, who spoke against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.

“BJP’s justice- Umar raised anti-India slogans…MLA O.P. Sharma and lawyer Chauhan thrashed students and journalists, but there was no investigation on it,” Congress leader Digvijaya Singh tweeted.

“Kanhaiya, who spoke against the Sangh and the ABVP is facing sedition charges and is in jail. Good days have really arrived for India. Jai Ho!,” he added.

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.
