New Delhi, Feb.14 (ANI): The Congress Party on Sunday launched a tirade against the BJP-led NDA Government over the ongoing controversy surrounding the JNU event, saying that it was not right to tag someone as ‘anti-national’ just because he or she is speaking against the ideology of a particular party.
Congress leader Ahmad Patel backed his party vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said that everyone’s voice should be heard.
“As Rahul Gandhi yesterday said, everyone’s voice should be heard. If someone speaks against an ideology of a particular party (BJP), it should not be considered as ‘anti-national’. So, whatever Rahul ji has said is absolutely correct,” Patel told the media here.
“But at the same time, if anyone is doing anti-national activities then it should be condemned. But if someone is doing all these things just to dominate the university then it is wrong,” he added.
Gandhi yesterday visited the Jawaharlal Nehru University to meet the students, who have been protesting against the arrest of their students’ union leader Kanhaiya Kumar.
Kanhaiya, who has been booked with charges of sedition, was arrested on Friday over a protest organised in the university campus on February 9 against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. (ANI)
