JNU sedition case: Lekhi slams govt

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: BJP spokesper­son and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi on Mon­day al­leged that by deny­ing per­mis­sion to pros­e­cute for­mer JNU stu­dents for sedition, the AAP govern­ment vi­o­lated the pro­vi­sions of the Con­sti­tu­tion.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence, Lekhi claimed that the govern­ment was try­ing to “favour those who want to break In­dia”.

Mean­while, hit­ting back at BJP, AAP ac­cused the rul­ing party at the Cen­tre of in­dulging in “dirty pol­i­tics”. AAP Ra­jya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said BJP was not get­ting real is­sues to tar­get the Arvind Ke­jri­wal govern­ment, and so “it is in­dulging in dirty pol­i­tics”.

“Amit Shah is not get­ting any is­sues and that is why Kan­haiya Ku­mar is be­ing made into one. Why did Delhi Po­lice take three years to file a chargeshee­t when it could have been done in 90 days,” Singh said, adding that no de­ci­sion had been taken yet on the for­mer JNU Stu­dents’ Union pres­i­dent Kan­haiya Ku­mar and nine oth­ers.
