New Delhi, Feb 23: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday, Feb 23 joined the protest at Jantar Mantar over the suicide of Hyderabad University scholar Rohith Vemula and alleged that central ministers drove Rohith to suicide.
Kejriwal said: "Everyone has right to ask questions and answers should be given. They (students) have the right to speak. We have right to raise our voice against anything which is wrong."
"Today the country's youth is against PM Narendra Modi. Narendra Modi's government is against Dalits. Centre has opened a front against Dalits and students, it should not interfere in educational institutes," Kejriwal said.
"Modiji, don't mess with students. If they get together, they'll shake your chair in such a manner that you won't forget," Kejriwal said.
Hitting out at BJP, Kejriwal said: "For BJP, the biggest patriot was Nathuram Godse, and Mahatma Gandhi was biggest anti-national. Who are they to give certificate of nationalism?" he questioned.
Kejriwal said that the attack by lawyers on journalists and Kanhaiya Kumar was highly condemnable.
Earlier in the day Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had joined the protest.
