New Delhi, Feb. 18 (ANI): Amid the raging controversy surrounding the arrest of Jawaharlal Nehru students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar on the sedition charges, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi along with senior party leaders will meet President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday afternoon.

He is likely to discuss law and order situation in Delhi with the President.

Earlier, a case has been registered against Rahul Gandhi in an Allahabad district court for his remark on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) incident.

The PIL filed in the court states that Gandhi took ‘anti-national’ stand by voicing his support for the JNU students.

The matter will be taken up for hearing on March 1.

Condemning the attack on journalists outside the Patiala House Court premises here on Monday, the Congress vice president had earlier alleged that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was trying to crush the opinion of the people.

He said that the Congress Party would not accept it and would fight this out.

“The RSS backed people are being appointed as vice-chancellors in the universities and the voices of the students are being gagged. They are suppressing the voice of the Indian students whether in Delhi, Hyderabad, Lucknow and in all the universities across the country. We will not accept this, we will fight against this,” Gandhi told the media on the sidelines of his public rally in Sivasagar, Assam. (ANI)
