BJP leader Amitabh Sinha admits on National TV that BJP supports Godse. Will PM #Modi now 'reward' him with a Defence Panel seat? It's time BJP drops the charade of respecting Gandhiji & openly professes it's love for #Godse. After all, it's his ideology the party follows! pic.twitter.com/1XJbdMh78x— Shama Mohamed (@drshamamohd) January 11, 2020
OMG. Who is this guy and why did he agree to come so unprepared for a debate with Kanhaiya? Made a complete fool of himself! https://t.co/3pYjUWScml— Rohini Singh (@rohini_sgh) January 10, 2020
Taking a dig at the Centre, former JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar on Thursday said abusing and blaming the Jawaharlal Nehru University will not solve the nation's problems. While addressing a crowd Kanhaiya Kumar, "government things we don't understand anything, but let me tell you we know everything. No one can fool us."
Addressing a crowd outside the premises of the Human Resource Development Ministry here, he also said there was no "tukde tukde" government before 2014. 'Tukde tukde' gang is a term used by the BJP to refer to alleged sympathisers of separatists.
"We have talked about what happened in JNU, but we also need to understand why one university is being defamed time and again. Why those standing with them too are branded as anti-national," Kumar was quoted as saying.
