Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi for addressing a students's meet organised to protest against the police crackdown on the JNU campus and the arrest of the students' union president in a sedition case, the BJP on Saturday accused the Congress vice president of supporting "anti - national" forces.
"A handful of people gather and raise slogans like 'Pakistan Zindabad' and 'Bharat ki barbadi tak, jang rahegi jang rahegi'. This is not any ideology. It is anti - national and Rahul Gandhi had gone to support them, " BJP national secretary Srikant Sharma told IANS.
"This is an insult to our nation and our martyrs. He insulted our Constitution and the judicial system, " he added.
Describing Gandhi's visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru University as unfortunate, the BJP leader asked him not to make educational institutions a hub of politics.
"This shows the bankruptcy of the Congress, that they went to support anti - national activities of a handful of people. The BJP condemns it, " Sharma said.
"When anti - India slogans were raised, these people (Congress) were demanding action and when the government took action, they are staging protests. This is unfortunate, " he added.
