Congress supports ‘Tukde Tukde Gang’, invites sedition accused Kanhaiya Kumar for an event remembering Mahatma Gandhi

Congress believes that since there are no substantive charges against Kanhaiya Kumar, he has been invited to the event.

Congress’ minority panel has extended an invitation to Kanhaiya Kumar, the student leader charge-sheeted in the JNU sedition case, reports Times Now.

As reported by Times Now, for an event ‘Remembering Mahatma Gandhi’ on his death anniversary, the minority department of Congress has extended an invitation to Kanhaiya Kumar as a speaker. Congress is reportedly of the firm view that charge-sheet has been dismissed by the Delhi court and has not accepted the charge-sheet ‘owing to loopholes’. Since there are no substantive charges against Kanhaiya Kumar he has been invited to the event.

Kanhaiya is reportedly a regular invitee on various Congress forums and was also invited for an event earlier in December. Earlier it was reported that along with Jignesh Mevani and Hardik Patel, Kanhaiya Kumar was also to be roped in for campaigning in the Madhya Pradesh state elections which concluded in December last year.

Recently, the charge sheet filed by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police named Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and others on the celebration of terrorist Afzal Guru’s death anniversary at Jawaharlal Nehru University in February 2016. The 1,200-page charge-sheet includes the former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya, Umar Gul, Basharat Ali, Raes Rasool and Khalid Bhat along with Shehla Rashid and the CPI national secretary D Raja’s daughter Aparajita Raja for allegedly shouting anti-national slogans at the JNU.
