Here are the reactions to his speech:
BJP actions have created a new political star in Kanhaiya Kumar. He may yet revive the moribund CPI. Govt so foolish
Shashi Tharoor, Congress
Lal Salam Comrade Kanhaiya. Independent India's future is in the hands of your generation.
Sitaram Yechury, CPI(M)
I had told several times- "Mr Modi, do not mess with students. Mr Modi did not agree."
Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Chief Minister
Don't miss the forest for the trees. Kanhaiya Kumar's speech isn't about oratory. It's about standing up to spin, distortion and lies
Milind Deora, Congress
You know PM is losing connect with the youth when a young student's speech from JNU is being talked about more than any Mann Ki Baat.
Chetan Bhagat, Author
