The Left and JDU leaders, who met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Saturday described their discussions ‘fruitful.’
Earlier on Saturday, several leaders from the CPI-M, CPI and Janata Dal United had met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday afternoon to discuss the fallout of the police crackdown in JNU.
They included the CPI-M general secretary, Sitaram Yechury, the CPI’s D Raja and the JDU’s KC Tyagi.
Speaking to media after the meet, Yechury said that they had requested Kejriwal to look into the police crackdown against the innocent students through a magisterial probe.
Tyagi for his part said that the reason behind reaching out to Kejriwal was because the Delhi CM was ‘great at exposing’ corruption.
“There are several videos doing the round which show that the arrested student union leader only criticised Manusmriti Irani and the ABVP. Is that being anti national? We came here because Kejriwal ji is the biggest face of anti-corruption movement in India. corruption ko expose karne mein unka jawab nahi.”
All these leaders have expressed their outrage on the police crackdown in the JNU on Friday.
Kejriwal had posted several tweets suggesting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was using his police to terrorise innocent people.
Critics say that the BJP government at the centre is trying harass students, perceived to be with Left leaning, to destablise an institution, where it has never had significant foothold.
