PATNA: Accusing the BJP-led NDA Government of shielding separatists and taking action against innocent people like JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, the Janata Dal (United) on Wednesday asked the ruling dispensation to ensure that the ‘anti-national virus’ is stopped from spreading in the country.
“The Central Government should have taken action on February 9 when the incident had taken place. This virus would not have spread had the government taken immediate action on the people raising anti-national slogans,” JD (U) leader Ajay Alok told ANI.
“They (the government) gave ample amount of time to the separatists and the traitors. They (anti-national elements) went to Jadavpur, now they will go to Karnataka and Mumbai. This is a virus and it has to be stopped from spreading. The Central Government does not want to take strict action. The government is just doing a formality by shielding the separatists and taking action against innocent people like Kanhaiya,” he added.
Continuing his tirade against the government for not initiating action against the real culprit, the JD (U) leader further said the ‘fake nationalism’ of the ruling BJP now stands exposed before the nation.
“The video footages do not show Kanhaiya raising anti-national slogans…rather he was checking the ID cards of the people who were raising slogans. You have not arrested the person, who was actually raising anti-national slogans just because he was a PDP supporter and you want to make a government in Kashmir,” said Alok.
“These so-called nationalists should be ashamed. Their fake nationalism is getting revealed before the nation,” he added.
In a report submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs on its crackdown on a group of protesting JNU students on February 9, the Delhi Police yesterday said that Democratic Students Union (DSU) activists led by Umar Khalid raised anti-national slogans on that day. The Delhi Police in its report also stated that JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar didn’t join them.
