Left leaders to meet President Mukherjee, seek his intervention on JNU row

New Delhi, Feb. 19 (ANI): Leaders of Left Parties, RJD, JD (U) and NCP will on Friday meet President Pranab Mukherjee to seek his intervention in the Jawaharlal Nehru University students-related row.

“The MPs from Left Parties, RJD, JD (U), NCP would meet President Mukherjee and would seek his intervention since he is also the visitor of JNU,” CPI (M) leader Sitaram Yechury told ANI.

“These attacks on us are actually the attacks on our constitutional rights and that he should take a call on it,” he added.

This meeting comes in wake of the attack by a bunch of lawyers on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar at the Patiala House District Court premises which injured several journalists and JNU students.

The Delhi Police failed to protect the victims for the second time in three days.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his cabinet ministers had yesterday met President Mukherjee to brief him over the situation in the national capital.

Talking to reporters after meeting President Pranab Mukherjee on the JNU row, the Chief Minister said if Supreme Court’s order is not followed within the 200 meters of its periphery, “then there will be no such thing called Constitution. Then it will be the Centre and the Prime Minister’s dictatorship. This is something very serious. There is no judiciary after that.” (ANI)
