This itself proves that taxpayers’ money or subsidy given to JNU is spent and utilised properly,” Kumar said, adding that people should not worry about wastage of taxpayers’ money as a large majority of people in the country want JNU like institutions.
Kanhaiya was escorted by policemen from the Patna airport on his arrival from New Delhi on Saturday; he moved with a convoy of security personnel in the state capital.
On the issue of booze ban in the state, he said: “Ideally everyone should have the choice whether they want to drink or not. But the social context is different in Bihar. So here, it is the right thing perhaps.” “But In the context of democratic ethos, it is not right,” he added.
The two leaders had supported him when he was sent to Tihar jail on sedition charge.

Kumar was arrested on the charge of sedition in February in connection with an event at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) commemorating the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. It was alleged that ‘anti-national’ slogans were raised during that event by Kanhaiya and other participants.
