Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Monday launched a scathing attack on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his stand on the Jawaharlal Nehru University row.
Shah said no anti - national activities would be allowed in the country. "No citizen can accept that a terrorist is favoured and anti - India slogans raised at a prestigious university of the country, " Shah said in a blog.
"But the kind of statements that Rahul Gandhi and his party colleagues have delivered at the campus proves that there is no place for national interest in their thinking, " he said.
JNU has been on the boil over the arrest of its students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar on sedition charges after some students organised a meet to mark the anniversaries of executions of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front co - founder Maqbool Bhat. Anti - India slogans were raised at the gathering.
Delhi Police on Thursday registered a sedition case and arrested Kanhaiya Kumar. He was sent to three days' police custody on Friday although he denied raising the anti - India slogans.
