Amit Shah hits out at Rahul Gandhi over JNU row

New Delhi, Feb 15 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Monday launched a scathing attack on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his stand on the Jawaharlal Nehru University row.

Shah said no anti-national activities would be allowed in the country. “No citizen can accept that a terrorist is favoured and anti-India slogans raised at a prestigious university of the country,” Shah said in a blog.

“But the kind of statements that Rahul Gandhi and his party colleagues have delivered at the campus proves that there is no place for national interest in their thinking,” he said.

JNU has been on the boil over the arrest of its students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar on sedition charges after some students organised a meet to mark the anniversaries of executions of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front co-founder Maqbool Bhat. Anti-India slogans were raised at the gathering.

Delhi Police on Thursday registered a sedition case and arrested Kanhaiya Kumar. He was sent to three days’ police custody on Friday although he denied raising the anti-India slogans.
