Ridiculing allegations of having received “foreign funding”, the students charged with sedition in connection with a controversial event on JNU campus against hanging of Afzal Guru claimed that it takes only “Rs 100” to organise any programme at the varsity.

“Various theories are being applied to probe our ‘terror links’ and allegations are being made that we had received foreign funding and planned meticulously for the so called anti-national event.

“The truth is that those who know the JNU culture are aware of the fact that it takes just Rs 100 to organise any event here and the same can be done without planning within an hour,” said Anant Prakash Narayan, former JNUSU Vice President, who is among those charged with sedition.

Ashutosh Kumar, former JNUSU President said, “Our names are being taken in court rooms and news studios. They are being screamed in Parliament. The entire country is looking at us as terrorists. But do they even know how things function in JNU and how routinely these affairs are handled.”

“We do not need any funding from any terror group to have a debate on Afzal Guru. Any university needs that? We are students, we just wish to debate, question and express. The way the government and police have blown things out of proportion is an example of the intolerance in the country,” he added.

Anant and Ashutosh, both PhD students at the varsity, are among the six students identified by the police for their alleged role in the February 9 during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

While the students union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on February 12, the duo along with three others – Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and Rama Naga – had gone in hiding fearing “mob-lynching”.

They resurfaced back on campus 10 days later. While Umar and Anirban surrendered before the police, the remaining three refused to do so but maintained that they are open to questioning by police as and when needed.

They are now leading the movement along with JNUSU Vice President Shehla Rashid Shora against the alleged branding of university as “anti-national”.

The six students were also academically debarred by the university administration after a prelim nary inquiry reportby the high-level committee found their involvement in the incident.

However, they have been allowed to stay in the university hostels as guests.

        See this moron talking and giving sickening arguments that they are free to talk about breaking the country and their discussions on the topic of The country pride and honour are so small a subject that they be given permission to talk anti national matters as routine. Just spend Rs100 bring as many as you wish anti social elements from outside ,hide them in your hostel rooms and start holding anti India demonstration with objectionable so logins and that you wifi do with such a small amount.To who ever he wants to make fool?Definately they are getting outside help in cash and manpower.Teach them what is nationalism and people can spot such rough elements.
