Amid the ongoing JNU row, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of using police to “terrorise everyone” even as he asserted that anti-national activities should not be tolerated under any circumstances and those guilty must be identified and punished.
His party, AAP, also attacked the Delhi Police accusing it of using “dictatorial” measures to “harass” JNU students and professors over the ongoing row in the varsity. The party said the entire episode has brought the “anti-student” face of the BJP-led government.
“Modiji wants to terrorise everyone by using police,” Kejriwal said.
In a tweet, he said: “No anti-national activity shud be tolerated under any circumstances. Those who did it must be identified and punished”. He said no one supports anti-national forces. “But targeting innocent students using that as an excuse will prove very costly to Modi government.”
AAP also alleged that BJP’s student wing ABVP was involved in the “conspiracy”.
The party demanded action against those who raised ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and other ‘anti-India’ slogans, but claimed that the incident was being used to target students and professors.
AAP leader Ashutosh targeted the Centre saying the Modi government was using JNU crisis as a pretext to distract people from the real issues of economy.
