Kanhaiya attacks PM over ‘jumlas’

Mumbai, April 23 (IANS) Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar on Saturday demanded that the government stop ‘jumlas’ (idioms) and start “working” as public patience was wearing out.

Addressing a students rally in Tilak Nagar, he said the people don’t want false promises or ‘jumlas’ in the name of Stand-Up India, Make In India, Skill India or communal-casteist politics, but need education, jobs, and development.

“Ours is politics of social justice, helping the masses of the country. The students and workers of the country are getting united. That’s why the Modi government is so scared,” Kanhaiya Kumar said in his speech punctuated with cheers and thunderous applause.

He demanded a complete end to caste-communal based politics inspired by the RSS and said the struggle was to save democracy and ensure social justice and empowerment.

“For how long will the masses continue to suffer?… The sun will rise,” he said.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union president arrived for an educational conclave organised by the the Left, students and youth organisations in his first visit to Mumbai followed by another engagement in Pune on Sunday.

  1. This ’28-yrs old student’ aka Mr.Nobody is being treated as some important national figure by corrupt media and hindu-hating bigots from minority groups. This shows a complete lack of leadership on the part of Opposition parties in India. Look at this guy and his rhetoric!! Public patience is wearing out? True – Public is running out of patience looking at this 28-yrs old pretending to be a student and wasting tax money!!!! Focus on your studies and get a decent job asap!!! By 28, I had saved enough to buy my own property!! This guy is still living in a hostel paid by tax money??? What a disgrace!!!!
