New Delhi:

Extrenal Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday said when he was in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) there was no 'tukde tukde' gang there. "I can certainly tell you, when I studied in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), we didn't see any 'tukde tukde' gang there," Jaishankar said. 

After the violence in Jawaharlal Nehru University campus on Sunday, Jaishankar, a JNU alumnus, had swiftly condemned the incident, saying it is completely against the tradition and culture of the university. "Tukde-Tukde" is a term often used by the right-wing parties to attack the opposition, particularly Left and Left-backed outfits as well as those who support them.

At a book release event, Jaishankar also said that unlike China, India allowed issues like Article 370, Ayodhya and GST to fester for a long time.
