New Delhi : Members of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) staged a protest against the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre at the Raisina Road here on Wednesday for targeting innocent students.

“If some students have raised anti-national slogans, action should be taken against them. But arresting innocent students and leaving the guilty scot-free should not be the government’s way of doing politics. We are protesting against that,” one of the protesting NSUI members told ANI.

“Above all the RSS, which has taken upon itself the responsibility of issuing certificates of patriotism, has not unfurled the Tricolour for the past 52 years, and are preaching us about it. We will teach them patriotism,” she added.

Another NUSI member told ANI that strict action against should be taken against the people raising anti-national slogans, while the innocent students should not be targeted by the government.

“The BJP Government, which had accompanied terrorists to Kandahar, and now taking about anti-national slogans, they will have to pay for their blunder,” he added.

However, the Delhi cops dislodged the protesting students in buses to clear the Raisina Road.

Meanwhile, JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who today was produced before the Patiala House Court here under heavy security cover, has been sent to judicial custody till March 2.
