Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - HT Cor­re­spon­dent ht­metro@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Kan­haiya Kumar, pres­i­dent of the JNU stu­dents union, launched an at­tack on PM Naren­dra Modi while ad­dress­ing a stu­dent’s con­ven­tion in Mum­bai on Satur­day. Kumar said stu­dents will form a united op­po­si­tion to oust the Modi govern­ment in the next par­lia­men­tary elec­tions. He also as­sailed the prime min­is­ter for fail­ing to visit Ma­ha­rash­tra’s drought-stricken ar­eas. “I don’t know whether there is an op­po­si­tion in par­lia­ment, but stu­dents are very much ag­i­tat­ing on the streets. This will now be­come a mass move­ment. We will unite the op­po­si­tion and en­sure your de­feat in the next elec­tions,” warned Kumar.

He was speak­ing at Adarsh Sansthan at Chem­bur, at an event or­gan­ised by sev­eral left­ist stu­dent or­gan­i­sa­tions. Af­ter be­ing turned away from a num­ber of venues, the or­gan­is­ers fi­nally got per­mis­sion to hold the event at Janata Shik­shan Sansthan at Worli.
