Commenting on JNU protests against fee hike, BJP's Giriraj Singh said that the protests are politically motivated and fee hike issue is merely an excuse.
"We've seen in the past that 'tukde-tukde gang' would raise slogans against India commemorate the death anniversary of Afzal Guru," he added. "The Modi government has put a stop to these activities," Giriraj further said.
The Delhi Police lodged two FIRs in connection with the protest by Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students over the hostel fee hike. Singh spoke strongly against the defacement of a Swami Vivekananda statue on the JNU campus and said it showed the real intentions of the protestors. Singh said one group of students is behind the agitation as they can no longer do whatever they wish as they used to do earlier.
Hundreds of JNU students rocked the national capital on Monday, bringing several parts of the city to a halt. The students took out a protest march opposing the hike.
