JNU student leader framed, says Nitish

Patna, Feb 15 (IANS) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said the central government framed JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar on sedition charges.

“Sedition charges against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar is wrong. He was not involved in any anti-national act. The central government has framed him,” Nitish Kumar said at a press conference.

He said Jawaharlal Nehru University was a prestigious institution and there was a tradition of free debate and discussion in a democratic environment. An attempt was now being made to “murder” democracy in the institution.

“The central government is taking action against JNU students on the direction of RSS-affiliated students organisation ABVP. It is dangerous and should be opposed,” he said.

Nitish Kumar also said the BJP-led government was trying to create an emergency-like situation in the country.

“Those who stand and speak in favour of the BJP are nationalists and those who oppose the BJP are termed anti-national. The BJP should not try to impose its ideology on the country,” he said.
