Kanhaiya Kumar

The former JNUSU president on the sedition case, how the BJP has helped him and why he’s not contesting the Bihar assembly election.
Speaking at the protest outside the HRD ministry, the former JNUSU president said it is Vice-Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar's job to talk to students and teachers.
It was a difficult battle for Kumar to start with and RJD's Tejaswi Yadav had a role to play as well.
He was locked in a triangular contest with Singh and RJD’s Tanveer Hasan.
Kanhaiya Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Chirag Paswan and Ravi Shankar Prasad are some of the candidates to watch out for.
The young RJD leader has to contend with his father's legacy and siblings' tantrums as well as his own fears about Kanhaiya Kumar.
Kumar is contesting from Bihar's Begusarai on a CPI ticket for 2019 elections. He would take on Union Minister Giriraj Singh.
BJP's Giriraj Singh is sulking and the RJD is yet to announce its candidate but underdog Kanhaiya's campaign is in full swing.
BJP minorities’ cell state vice president Titu Badwal alleged that Kumar had made the “incendiary” comments at the Anjuman Islamia Hall in Kishanganj on Monday.
The investigating officer in the case told the court that the state government has not yet granted the required sanction to the Delhi Police to prosecute the accused.
“Authorities can’t sit on file for indefinite period,” the court said.
Former JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar and nine others were accused of raising anti-India slogans and charged with sedition by the Delhi Police on Monday.
Former student activists have slammed the Delhi Police’s decision to charge them with sedition as politically motivated.
Political activist Shehla Rashid has also been named in the chargesheet in the JNU sedition case.
Apart from Kumar and Khalid, the chargesheet also names Anirban Bhattacharya and eight others.
In an interview, Kanhaiya Kumar explains why he thinks Narendra Modi's 'Divert And Rule' politics is over.
"Students and faculties are getting threats of murder, rape and are being abused because of this."
"The draft report said there is enough evidence to prosecute Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya for sedition."
Dr. Ramin Jahanbegloo's book ‘Gadflies In The Public Space’ uncovers a rich history of dissent.
The police haven't been able to prove sedition charges against the student leader.
