New Delhi, March 31: BJP MP Kirron Kher and JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar were engaged in a verbal war on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Kanhaiya Kumar had allegedly said there was a difference between 1984 anti-Sikh riots and 2002 Gujarat riots, on which the actor-turned-politician Kirron Kher reacted sharply by calling him disgraceful and asked if his conscience was dead.
On Monday, March 28, JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar had compared the alleged onslaught on varsities with Gujarat riots alleging both of them were carried out "with support" from state machinery even as he stressed that there is a fundamental difference between "emergency" and "fascism".
