Country won’t change by changing video or meat: Kanhaiya to PM Modi

New Delhi: JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was on Monday critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he alleged that “emergency-like” situation has been created in all universities and the actual change in the country will not happen by changing “meat” or “videos”.

In an open letter to PM Modi, Kanhaiya was referring to the Dadri lynching incident where a man was lynched on suspicion that his family stored and ate beef at their house and surfacing of allegedly doctored videos about the controversial February 9 event at JNU.

“Modi ji, the country won’t change by changing the meat or the video. The nation will be transformed when the condition of its people are improved. Under your regime, things have only gone from bad to worse. Youth and students elected you with high hopes,” he said in the letter.

“It seems that a situation of emergency has been created in every university. Is this the situation that you were promising when you were chanting the slogans of ‘achche din’ across the length and breadth of the nation?” he said.
