Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of shielding those who raised anti-India slogans at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on February 9.
Kejriwal alleged that those involved in anti-India sloganeering are not being arrested because BJP wants to form the government with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir.
Is this the reason why those who actually raised slogans at JNU not being arrested? Is this BJP’s nationalism? https://t.co/DWy2FxRKg2

His comments came after media reports suggested that people who raised anti-India slogans at JNU were Kashmiris.
Questioning the Prime Minister on the same, he said:
“I question PM Modi that why those involved in anti-India sloganeering haven’t been arrested yet? It is because the people who raised such slogans are from Kashmir and their arrest might upset PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti ji, with whom BJP wants to form government in Jammu and Kashmir.”
Castigating the Modi-led government, he added, “Our soldiers are dying every day on the borders but Modi is protecting anti-nationals just for the sake of his government in Kashmir.”
On the other side, the PDP president Mehbooba Mufti has dropped enough hints suggesting that the party may form the government with the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party.
