The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday made a veiled attack on Congress and the Left over their stand on the controversy in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), saying some political leaders are “condoning anti-national acts instead of demanding action against them”.
RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya also termed as “serious” what he claimed was students engaging in “anti-India activities” on the campus of a central university and some teachers supporting them.
“At the expense of exchequer money, instead of studying, students are involving themselves in anti-India activities and some teachers are supporting them. It is serious,” he said.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and D Raja had yesterday met the students on the campus who are protesting against the sedition case slapped on the president of the JNU students’ union Kanhaiya Kumar.
Asked about their visit to the campus, Vaidya said, “Instead of condemning and demanding strict action against anti-national activities, some political leaders are condoning the act.”
