Kanhaiya Kumar’s live speech soon after being released from Tihar Jail on bail had gone viral. His honest yet passionate speech and clarity of thoughts earned him plenty of plaudits from politicians of all hues bar affiliates of the RSS.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal confessed to having fallen in love with the 26-year-old leader of JNU Students’ Union. Joining him in praise for the boy from Bihar was the chief minister Nitish Kumar.
But one significant accolade that almost went unnoticed from the public discourse were the comments made by Suresh Raina, who took to Facebook to express his feelings on Kanhaiya.
Raina too joined Kejriwal and Nitish to announce his public love for Kanhaiya.
He took to his Facebook page to write, ” #Kanhaiya on NDTV right now. Beauty! Can just feel the honesty in every word.. Respect for him. True fighter and honest man. Salute you.”
Raina’s post was an instant hit with fans fervently registering their appreciation for the Indian cricketer’s admirable gesture.
One fan wrote, ” My respect for you has increased. It takes a great courage for celebrity to risk his reputation and say what he feels.”
