Aam Aadmi Party today demanded immediate arrest and strict action in connection with the posters announcing a cash reward for anyone who “shoots down” JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar.
The party said these posters can “disturb” the law and order situation in the national capital.
“Delhi Police should immediately arrest the individual in whose name the posters have been put up and it must find out who is the mastermind behind the entire conspiracy.
“These posters are part of a malicious hate campaign, which is being boosted by atrocious statements repeatedly coming from some BJP leaders and frontal organisations of this party in a clear attempt to stifle the voices of those politically opposed to BJP,” AAP said in a statement.
The party also attacked BJP for the statements by its leaders.
“The country’s ruling party seems to be crossing all limits with even some of its Union ministers and MPs indulging in an all-out verbal assault and open threats to a young student and they are not even sparing late Rohith Vemula.
It said “the sequence of statements by BJP leaders, particularly on Saturday, point towards a well thought-out strategy to browbeat the students who are raising a voice of dissent against the central government’s wrong policies.”
