JNU protest, JNU missing student, JNU AAP, JNU BJP, JNU Congress, Najeeb Ahmed, news, latest news, India news, national news, Delhi news BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma claimed that the BJP was providing a corruption-free government and hence the opposition was trying to use various incidents to attack it.

The BJP on Sunday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Congress and the Left of “orchestrating” the protest by JNU students at India Gate, saying they cannot digest the “good work” done by the Narendra Modi government. BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said the party prays that JNU student Najeeb Ahmed, who went missing since October 14, is found safe, adding that it was “tragic” that he could not be traced yet.

Watch what else is making news:

“The police permission was taken for Jantar Mantar but they have intentionally gone to India Gate where Section 144 of CrPC is imposed. Arvind Kejriwal had gone to (JNU) campus a few days back and influenced the students to take this step,” Sharma alleged. He asserted that none of the political leaders in the opposition had any concern for the missing students and that they were only “playing politics”.

“The opposition, be it the AAP, Congress or the Left cannot digest the fact that the Modi government is fulfilling all its promises even as they can’t. It is shameful that they are using students to hit out at the Modi government,” Sharma said. He claimed that the BJP was providing a corruption-free government and hence the opposition was trying to use various incidents to attack it.

Stating that the opposition was “devoid of ideas”, he slammed them for resorting to politically milk the tragic incident of a missing scholar. Najeeb, a Biotechnology student, has been missing since a brawl at his hostel on October 14. The Left-linked All India Students Association (AISA) has alleged that before he vanished, Najeeb was beaten up by activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), which is linked to the RSS.

The ABVP, however, has denied any involvement in his disappearance. The protest comes days within days of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other leaders of the opposition parties visiting the university during a protest regarding the missing student.

The students have accused the JNU authorities of “not doing enough” to trace him. Last month, the protesting students had kept the Vice-Chancellor, Rector and other University officials confined in the administrative block for a whole night, demanding that they take action to trace Najeeb.

The police have announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh for any information on Najeeb.

        India has the distinction of being only the second country in the world after Hitler's Third Reich in being ruled by a M MURDERER.

            My AGENCY sources say STATE TERRORIST RAJNATH SINGH ORDERED IB to directly get involved in the disappearance of Najeeb. Najeeb was a threat to ABVP(All Brahmin Varmints and PERVERTS). Hope IB thugs bring him back alive.

Atleast we admit that caste system is bad for us although implementation needs to be fastso that this problem can be short out as early as possible.. we need to be united

                        Modi bhakts have this characteristic. They go after "Who" is in to their opposition. Contents, for them, is less important or may be their minds do not appreciate substance.

                            Not investigating or acknowledging any corruption charges is not being corruption free.

                              The only party who remains apolitical in all these issues is the ruling party. all others are here for petty politics, ruling party is formed up of super heroes on a mission to save the nation.

                                  Opposition is unsuccessfully trying to keep up the pressure on NDA Govt. Just to remain in limelight. Families in JandK and of 1984 riots are still waiting for those who went missing or got killed. Almost each family in Kashmir has at least 1 male member missing. They are just waiting since decades.

                                      Why Congress is not educating Muslims on triple talaq and UCC ? That can be a constructive contribution to India.

                                        Is playing politics over issues the monopoly of the Sangh Parivar? They have the w business of beef,,judicial killing and human rights violations now.The majority rule can tamper with freedom of expression and oppose democratic methods of agitation.Killing the innocent at the border,and murdering of our jawans are the sole responsibility of the BJP. Do not blame sthan, you have undermined the peace process,our house in Kashmir is on fire,and BJP leadership is playing fiddle on their roofs,they are dancing and feasting on surgical strikes and making hay as the UP elections are coming and they are making a mockery of democracy.The HIndu- Moslem divide will bring down our FDI prospects,and industrial growth.There will be no takers for a country where violations of human rights are becoming the norm.Only the Trump supporters in US and in BJP are day dreaming and offering pooja for the right wing gods and goddesses of America.Overseas BJP is hoping the triumph of Trumph and all Moslem haters.Shah and Modi are spearheading these anti Moslem forces in this country.Sad indeed,unfortunate it is,tragic could be a better word.

                                          First, the government should bear all the election expenses of all candidates fighting election, from Panchayat to Parliament. Govt. can reduce the number of contestants through an elimination process agreed upon by all concerned after debates and discussions. This only can generate and promote clean leaders. Otherwise we will have people like the present leader who keep side kicks for collecting kick backs so that he will not be seen directly involved in corruption. The previous regime was easily caught red handed. Present regime has been clever to close loop s through which corruption stories used to come out. So not getting caught is more important than being clean and non-corrupt.

                                            Opposition is playing politics on 1) Our soldiers getting regularly killed at border 2) Akhlaq lynching 2) Rohit Vemula's forced suicide at Hyderabad University 3) JNU - fabricated video case to accuse and falsely implicate students in police cases 4) Pune Film Insute Students' agitation 5) JNU Student missing after ABVP intimidation .... The list is growing. Our government is working hard to promote and impose it's ideology on all Indians. Opposition should not play politics on any of these.
