New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal faced opposition while joining a protest march of students at the Jantar Mantar on Tuesday.
Seeking to express his solidarity with students protesting against the suicide of Hyderabad University scholar Rohith Vemula and the detention of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, Kejriwal who was addressing the students, reacted when an unidentified man raised an ‘Aarakshan Virodhi Kejriwal’ slogan.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief responded, “When did I say I am against reservations? I have always supported it.”
Targeting the Centre, he further stated that the BJP-led NDA Government has not done much for Dalits.
Students, teachers and activists took to the streets of Delhi to demand justice for Rohith Vemula and Kanhaiya Kumar.
A major protest against the JNU row was organised in the city last week where a large number of students, academia, intellectuals and rights activists had participated. (ANI)
