Locals of Begusarai, who were outraged by Kanhaiya Kumar’s stand on various issued stopped his cavalcade and asked him what kind of ‘Azaadi’ he wanted, referring to the ‘Hum cheen ke lenge Azaadi, Bharat tere tukde honge Inshallah’ slogans that were raised in JNU by Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and other students in 2016.
The local who confronted Kanhaiya said that the poor people of this country don’t want any ‘Azaadi’. He also said that while it is good that Kanhaiya wants to become a politician, but he needs to give answers to the people of this country.
The people of Begusarai also asked Kanhaiya why he opposed reservation for the economically backward people of the country. Prime Minister Modi had recently announced 10% reservation for the poor people of India that was opposed tooth and nail by not just Kanhaiya Kumar but even Congress. Stunned, Kanhaiya had no response to the questions that were being thrown at him.
The only response Kanhaiya had was to ask the locals if they were BJP supporters. To that, the locals said that they are actually going to vote for NOTA (None of the above). They also said that Kanhaiya Kumar should respond to questions and that anyone who asks questions does not become a BJP supporter. People also told Kanhaiya that he shouldn’t bother asking for votes but first, win the hearts of people and that screaming “Bharat tere tukde honge Inshallah Inshallah” won’t help him.
Following the conversation, both sides resorted to sloganeering. The locals, in unison, said “Deshdrohi Murdabad”. According to reports, it was only after persuasion that Kanhaiya’s cavalcade was allowed to pass.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been shielding Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and other students in the sedition case by delaying granting sanction for the prosecution that the Delhi police needs to finalise the chargesheet against the students who raised seditious slogans in 2016.
Interestingly, in the affidavit filed with his nomination, Kanhaiya Kumar has listed himself as ‘unemployed’ and yet, showed an income of Rs 6,30,360 in 2017-18 and Rs 2,28,290 in the year 2018-19.
In October 2018, an FIR was filed in Patna against Kanhaiya Kumar and his supporters after they misbehaved with AIIMS doctors. From his close aide accusing him of being a ‘liar’ and a ‘casteist’, to when Kanhaiya was accused of flashing his d***k to a woman, Kanhaiya Kumar has been a paragon of disruption and a symbol of everything that is wrong with Indian politics. We had earlier also reported how Kanhaiya Kumar had used a disreputable journal, which is blacklisted internationally, to get his article published for PhD thesis submission.
