A day after Kejriwal govt in Delhi gave a nod to Kanhaiya Kumar’s prosecution in a 2016 sedition case, Twitterati takes a jibe on the chief minister. #Kejriwal_Is_A_Sanke starts trending on Twitter.
Netizens expressed shock and surprise over the Delhi government’s decision and a sudden change in the Delhi chief minister’s attitude towards the former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar. Many linked it to the Bihar scheduled to be held later this year.
The Delhi Police had last year filed the charge sheet at a city court against Kanhaiya Kumar and others, saying he was leading a procession and supported seditious slogans at an event in February 2016.
It also charged former JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya with allegedly shouting anti-India slogans during the event to commemorate the hanging of Parliament-attack mastermind Afzal Guru.
The prosecution sanction was granted nearly a year after a city court asked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to take a decision within a reasonable timeframe and noted that the delay was leading to violation of the due process of law.
