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.

                  Dear meena Indian civilization is the only one in world where almost all religions co existed for the longest period of time, so pls don't blame ourself without much research. 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
