Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in Patna on Friday took out a march against the ruling Janata Dal – U, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and Congress Party for insulting Shaheed Bhagat Singh after they compared Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student leader Kanhaiya Kumar and his cohorts to the martyr and freedom fighter icon.

Led by BJP state President Mangal Pandey, a number of BJP leaders and the members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the procession marched through several streets in the state capital chanting anti-Nitish and anti-Congress slogans a few days after senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor compared Kanhaiya Kumar to Bhagat Singh who went to the gallows while fighting for the freedom of India from the hands of the British.

"For the last several months, Congress and its allies have been openly talking about splitting the nation and are coordinating their efforts with anti-national elements to achieve this goal. Those who want to see the destruction of India are being compared to our heroes like Shaheed Bhagat Singh. However, we are not going to stay on the sidelines while all this is going on and will protest these anti-national forces with full might to save the nation from being destroyed," Pandey said.

The BJP leader also slammed the JNU calling it the hotbed of extremism and anti-national activities that, he said, did not bode well for a healthy nation and its continued growth.

Pandey also accused Bihar leaders including Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav of siding with those whose intention was to split the nation and make India weak.

"These leaders, to advance their own personal and political agendas, are on the wrong side of the history by supporting the enemies of the nation. However, people of Bihar will teach them a lesson in the coming months," he said.

Sanjay Mayukh, Surajnandan Kushwaha, Dr. Sanjeev Chaurasia, Sitaram Pandey and many others took part in the Friday rally.
