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.
