Kanhaiya Kumar is locked in a triangular contest with Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Giriraj Singh and the RJD candidate Tanweer Hasan.

Kanhaiya, 32, hit the national headlines when he was arrested in February 2016 and accused of sedition for allegedly doing nothing to prevent the raising of anti-India slogans on the JNU campus in Delhi.

The JNUSU President for 2015-16 was then pursuing doctorate from the School of International Studies and was affiliated to the All India Students Federation (AISF).

Kanhaiya, who spoke against the ruling BJP-led NDA and its ideological agenda has neither agricultural land nor a vehicle in his name. He has a doctorate but is unemployed.

Kanhaiya is the joint Left candidate and supported by several organisations, Left-liberal activists and Bollywood actors and theatre personalities.
