Zero tolerance for antinational activity: Dy CM
AGRA: Deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma on Saturday said the government had zero tolerance for anti-national activities.
He was replying to a question about the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) incident in which a sedition case was filed against two Kashmiri students who allegedly shouted anti-national slogans while attempting to hold a funeral prayer meeting for a slain militant Manan Wani who was also a former research scholar of the university.
Sharma alleged there were a few people polluted by the ideology of foreign nation who enjoyed the protection of some political parties but the government would deal firmly with them.
The deputy chief minister was in Agra on Saturday to welcome the ‘yatra’ that reached the Taj city to mark the birth centenary year of the late BJP leader Vijaya Raje Scindia.
He held a meeting with officials and elected representatives of the party and stressed on an action plan for cleanliness in Agra.
“There were terrorist activities all over the nation in the past but the biggest achievement of the NDA government is that these terrorists are not allowed to be active outside Kashmir, where they are neutralised successfully,” he said.
