New Delhi : JNU student Kanhaiya Kumar, out on bail in a sedition case, on Tuesday, joined the anti-ABVP march at the Delhi University demanding “non-violence” on campuses even as ABVP members raised “go back Kanhaiya” slogans.

Kanhaiya, who led the protesters in shouting his traditional “azaadi” slogans, clarified at the march that he wasn’t participating in the protest as a “JNU student or Leftist” but as a student like others who are demanding “non-violence on university campuses”.

“You (ABVP) can’t enforce one particular ideology on anyone and there should be room for discussion. You differ with our idea of patriotism, nationalism, free speech or anything under the sun. Come have a discussion with us but kindly don’t indulge in any violence,” he said while addressing the protesters.

ABVP supporters, objected to his visit on the DU campus and shouted slogans of “go back Kanhaiya” and tried to disrupt his speech.
