Minister regrets Delhi BJP legislator’s hooliganism

New Delhi, Feb 17 (IANS) Senior BJP leader and union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday said his party legislator in Delhi O.P. Sharma “should not have taken law into his own hands and not resorted to violence” ahead of a court appearance of JNUSU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who has been charged with sedition.

The communications and information technology minister said the law will take its own course against Sharma and that the party could not possibly condone the his actions.

Speaking to India Today TV, Prasad, however, justified the action taken by Delhi Police against the students of Jawarlal Nehru University (JNU), saying the Narendra Modi government “will not tolerate anti-national activities of any kind on campus”.

He also justified invoking of sedition charges against Kanhaiya Kumar.

The university has been on the boil over the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar 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 last 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.
