Rajkot: Former president of students’ union of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Kanhaiya Kumar on Wednesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he is creating a futile debate about patriotism to divert attention of people from real issues and said the later had tarnished the image of Gujarat by creating an atmosphere of lies and deceits.
He said, “Didn’t the Delhi police know that they need permission from the Delhi government to file chargesheet against me in the sedition case. The real issue is that in my name, in names of Hardik Patel, Jignesh Mevani, sloganeering and JNU, you wanted to create a futile debate of patriots and anti-nationals so that people forget about your failures, he said while addressing a joint press conference.
A rally and a public meeting were also jointly organised by former Congress MLA Indranil Rajyaguru, Rashtravadi Yuva Manch and Dalit Adhikar Manch. The rally was also addressed by Patidar quota stir leader Hardik Patel and Vadgam Independent MLA and Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani.
Kanhaiya said, they call me antinational. The fact is more than a dozen people in my family serve in army.
Kanhaiya told that governments are elected, to construct schools, roads, hospitals, to provide employment, to provide peace and security in the society, if you fail in this, as an ordinary citizen, I have every right to ask government and prime minister. He said when he asks questions he is threatened however he said we are not afraid of anyone because we have done nothing wrong.
