New Delhi: Days after Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said his government is yet to decide on granting prosecution sanction in the 2016 JNU sedition case, BJP Lok Sabha member from New Delhi Meenakshi Lekhi on Monday demanded he make clear if his dispensation favours those, who want to break India.

Addressing a press conference, Ms Lekhi wondered if the Kejriwal government had an “understanding with those who raised the controversial slogans” on the JNU campus in February 2016.

“They were raising slogans against the hanging of Afzal Guru, against India. Only terrorists can talk in such language. The Kejriwal government should make clear if it is standing with those who want to break India,” Ms Lekhi asked.

She also wondered if the AAP was considering fielding these people in the upcoming Assembly elections. “The Kejriwal government is causing interruptions in the judiciary’s work,” Ms Lekhi alleged.

She also said the JNU incident was a fit case to slap sedition charges. In February this year, a city court had lashed out at the Delhi government over delay in granting requisite sanctionse, saying they cannot sit on the file indefinitely.
