In what was called ‘Save the country, March for nation', a protest rally was taken out today in Delhi against alleged "anti national activities by certain elements at JNU".
People in thousands - women, children, youngsters, old - all holding the tricolour marched for over 6 kilometres from Rajghat to near Parliament Street Police Station.
The rally was led by 15 former Generals and equivalent of all the three Defence forces. Families of martyrs also joined the rally.
It's a sight how even Delhi's housewives and children come out in the streets whenever there is a call for the nation or even when they are made to believe so. Delhi has witnessed it many a times, be it Anna andolan, Nirbhaya protests, or candle light marches for some or the other cause.
There were school students wearing traditional Dhoti Kurta attire from Vishwa Hindu Parishad's Gurukal Badri Bhagat Ved Vidyalaya in Delhi.
Amid patriotic slogans and songs which filled the air in the heart of Delhi, Vice Admirals and Major Generals addressed the crowd gathered after the completion of march.
"We are against the Break India initiative, we are for PM Modi's Make India."
A lawyer and RSS member A Govindan told OneIndia that Modi ji is doing good work and these are attempts to malign his work. Directly referring to recent controversy at JNU, he said,
"We cannot have institutes being destroyed like this."
A student Mihir Kumar had joined the protest to oppose those who are supporting alleged ‘anti-nationals' at JNU.
