BJP Shielding Anti-Nationals: Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal expressed his opinion through a post on Twitter.

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today accused the BJP of shielding those "who raised anti-national slogans" on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus in Delhi.

"BJP is most anti-national of all. Why is it shielding those who raised anti-national slogans?"(sic) Mr Kejriwal asked in a tweet.

The Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have been at loggerheads over several issues, including the JNU row. The AAP has demanded the arrest of the outsiders who raised the anti-national slogans in the varsity campus on February 9.

Following the incident, JNU Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was slapped with sedition charge and was arrested. He was given an interim bail of six months by a Delhi court on March 2.

Two other students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, who too were booked under the sedition charge, are still in police custody.
