AIMIM chief and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday accused the NDA government of deflecting attention from crucial issues by deliberately using the JNU incident to incite passions across the nation.
According to a report in DC, the MP said that the nation was going through a tough phase due to depreciating value of the rupee, declining exports and escalating tensions.
Owaisi added that Union home minister Rajnath Singh rushed to say that terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed was behind the JNU incident without even verifying whether his Twitter account was fake or real before, the Loksabha MP told media.
He said that even though he had ideological differences with the Communist party to which JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar was associated with, the Communists could never be considered anti-nationals.
Citing Supreme Court judgements in cases against Arundhati Roy, Kedarnath and Binayak Sen and others, Owaisi said that the sedition case against JNU student union leader Kanhaiya Kumar would not stand before the court of law.
