On 8th May 2019, a short video clip went viral on Social Media where a man was seen taking a selfie with actress Swara Bhaskar at the airport. In the clip, while taking a selfie, the man says to Swara Bhaskar, 'par ma'am aayega to Modi hi'.
Kanhaiya Kumar was gheraod by Begusarai locals and questioned about the 'Bharat tere tukde honge' slogans that were raised by him and his opposition to reservation for the economically backward sections of the society.
In February this year, the court had come down hard against the AAP government claiming that it is deliberately delaying the process of granting the sanction to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar and others, accused of sedition.
Kanhaiya Kumar is currently on bail for allegedly chanting anti-national slogans at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi in 2016. The Delhi Police Special Cell had submitted 1200-page charge-sheet in January this year against Kanhaiya Kumar and other left-wing students of the JNU.
The court has questioned the Delhi police as to why the chargesheet in the JNU sedition case against Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and others was filed without proper sanction from the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal
