Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal owes explanation on nod to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar: CPI general secretary D. Raja
CPI general secretary D. Raja on Saturday said Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal owed an explanation on what made him allow Kanhaiya Kumar’s prosecution on the charge of sedition.
“Kejriwal himself had said the video on Kumar was a doctored one after sedition charges were framed against him in 2016,” Raja told reporters here.
The AAP government has sanctioned the prosecution of the CPI leader and nine others in a sedition case linked to alleged slogans raised at Jawaharlal Nehru University on February 9, 2016.
Raja said the charges were framed without any evidence and the CPI was ready to fight the case politically and legally.
'The Centre should immediately inquire into the details of the violence and bring to book all those behind it,' he said.
