Jawaharlal Nehru University students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar is likely to get tickets from BJP for contesting the upcoming West Bengal assembly election. According to sources, Kanhaiya who has been grabbing headlines after the JNU row wants to focus on building his political career. There has been huge debate about the JNU controversy in media as Kanhaiya has become famous among the masses. He wants to cash in on his popularity and make his debut in politics. He wants to forget about the controversies and is keen to leave his mark in politics.
Speaking about his foray into politics, Kanhaiya said, “Yes I am looking forward to make my political debut and I will contest the election in West Bengal. I have interacted with senior BJP leaders like Amit Shah who is keen to launch me as a candidate for the assembly polls. I want to serve the people and work for the nation’s development.”
BJP president Amit Shah confirmed about Kanhaiya’s entry into politics and said, “Kanhaiya is a youth leader and he can attract large number of crowds. We will issue a ticket to him for contesting the West Bengal assembly polls. We are yet to decide from which constituency he will fight election. The Bengal election is very impor-tant for BJP and we are grooming youth who can connect with voters. Kanhaiya is an ideal candidate and he possesses good communication skills which are necessary for becoming a politician.”
Few days back, Kanhaiya Kumar invited controversy by saying that there is difference between the 1984 Sikh riots and 2002 Gujarat riots. He had said that anti-Sikh riot was a “mob-led massacre” while 2002 Gujarat riots were a “state sponsored violence. Kanhaiya had also compared the alleged onslaught on varsities with Gujarat riots alleging both of them were carried out “with support” from state machinery even as he stressed that there is a fundamental difference between “emergency” and “fascism”. Kumar’s comments did not go down well even with those who have been his zealous supporters ever since he was arrested in a sedition case over an event against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
Later Kanhaiya Kumar took a you turn and said “both 1984 and 2002 were indeed state led pogroms for which justice is still awaited. He also said that he has been misinterpreted and mis-represented yet again.
