Kanhaiya Kumar, president of the JNU students union, delivered an impassioned speech in front of thousands of students at the university, shortly after being released on bail from Tihar jail.

Though Kumar’s comeback speech may have impressed many prominent news channels, Makarand Paranjape, poet and professor of English at Jawaharlal Nehru University, wasted no time in correcting Kumar over facts.

Paranjape was speaking at the Speak-in at the administration block, the 15th of the edition.

Speaking amidst a gathering which was either neutral or pro-Left, Paranjape still took on Kumar’s citing as “misrepresentation” during his speech after his release from jail post the interim-bail.

Notably, Paranjape’s speech was interrupted by Kanhaiya Kumar amid sloganeering and booing by some students.

Paranjape had earlier said the February 9 event in support of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru at JNU was carried out under a false pretext.

“People who wanted to hold that event said they would conduct a poetry reading and that there would be seven people. It was called ‘A Country Without a Post Office’. Instead it became a commemoration for Afzal Guru. So it was done on the false pretext,” he had said.

He had also said that it was important for the students at JNU, which is considered an institution of “national integration”, to study and not do politics or they will be “neither here nor there”.
