NEW DELHI: BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha once again hit out at centre’s handling of the JNU issue and subsequent lawyers attack saying systems of governance have been allowed to be tarnished by anarchy and police inaction.
The MP who has been making his opposition known even against the his party’s government said assualt by some lawyers at a court complex presented a "very poor image" which could have been avoided.
"I am proud of being an Indian, I love and deeply respect my motherland, l have tremendous faith in our Constitution and have great regard for our dashing, dynamic, action hero Prime Minister.
"I also assure everyone that BJP is my first and last party. I am, however, saddened that institutions and systems of governance have been allowed to be tarnished by anarchy and police inaction," Sinha tweeted.
Defending JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar who has been slapped sedition charges, Sinha said pressing of very serious "sedition" charges against students, for what might often be overenthusiastic activism in campus reflects a highly ineffective university administration and overzealous police action.”
“I firmly believe that any anti-national activity has to be dealt with very firmly...I also believe innocents must be saved and spared,” he added.
"Have heard transcript of speech of Kanhaiya, our Bihar boy president of JNUSU. He has said nothing anti-national or against Constitution," Sinha yesterday wrote on Twitter, the platform which he uses frequently to launch attacks against his party.
He further said the "behaviour of some lawyers friends and inaction of some apparently helpless police personnel presented a very poor image and did not show our government in good light. Wish it could have been avoided."
With his party men asking for his resignation for airring his dissent publically, Sinha said.
"Instead of asking for my resignation they should instead quit for leading the party to disastrous performance in recent Bihar elections," Sinha said.
