I Am a Student, Not a Politician: Kanhaiya Kumar
Amidst speculation on his political ambitions, JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar today said he has no intention of joining mainstream politics or contesting any election.
The PhD student, who is facing a sedition charge, also said that Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru was a citizen of India and a debate on his death penalty is “legitimate”.
He said Guru is not his “idol” but Rohith Vemula, the Hyderabad Central University student who committed suicide, is.
“I am not a politician, I am a student. I have no intention of joining mainstream politics or contesting any election.”
