BJP to launch 3-day campaign to counter attempts to “mislead” nation

New Delhi: Seeking to effectively counter the opposition’s attack over the JNU row, BJP will launch a three-day campaign from tomorrow to thwart attempts to “mislead” the nation by projecting “anti-national” voices as freedom of expression.

The ‘Jan Swabhiman Abhiyan’ (campaign for people’s self- pride) will be observed countrywide between February 18 and 20 during which party leaders and workers will hold several events to spread awareness about it among the masses, BJP said in a statement.

“BJP has decided to launch the campaign for the country’s unity, integrity and progress. Under this, BJP workers will hold numerous events for people’s awareness across the country.

“This exercise will be run against the ill-attempts of some political powers to mislead the nation by projecting recent anti-national incidents in the very prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University as freedom of expression,” it said.

Party workers will hold dharnas, run signature campaign, play patriotic songs and hold meetings, among other events.

It has also decided to aggressively put forth its stand on the JNU incident and raise the testimony of Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley during the upcoming Parliament session.
