CONTROVERSIES RELATED TO KUMAR :-
- On 8 March 2016, speaking at an International Women’s Dayevent, Kumar referred to the rape of Kashmiri women committed by personnel of the Indian Army.
- On 10 March 2016, KamleshNarwana, Ex JNU student unveiled an unsigned University order dated 16 October 2015, according to which, Kanhaiya Kumar was fined by the JNU administration last year for “misbehaving” with a girl student and “threatening” her. It was subsequently reported via Press Trust of Indiathat “the university administration confirmed in a statement that the letter[order] was authentic and action was taken against the student leader”. Narwana, who is currently an Assistant Professor at the Delhi University, wrote an open letter to Kumar and posted it on Facebook, in which she stated that Kumar was urinating in the open and, when she objected, he became abusive and threatened her, following which she filed a complaint against him with JNU proctor office in June 2015.
- During DURGA POOJA when entire nation is celebrating durga poojan , JNU student council celebrates mahishasur shahadat diwas where they worship mahishasurn the demon and hurts the hindu sediments .
( mahishasur was a demon who used his supper natural power to destroy the humanity . as per a boon he could only be killed by women . mahishasur use to underestimate the women and was cruel towards and use to treat the lady as a sex slave. As a concequence MAA DURGA killed him and re-established the dharma.)
Mahishashur was not a heroic personality but JNU student council worshiped him without any logic and with a clear intention of gaining spot light and hearting hindu sediments to prove themselves secular . all such movements were carried under the banner of RIGHT TO SPEECH.
They misused there rights and proved themselves a least responsible citizen who want there rights to be fullfilled without fullfilling there duties towards nation.
RESPONCES FROM POLITICS :-
Unfortunatly the poor politics and hypocrite ‘so-called’ thinkers and intellectuals played a vital role in suppling oxygen to blow the fire and bloom the ballon of such anti national movement. To fullfill the political greed many political partries cheered up kanhaiya kumar and umar Khalid for there movement. Indian National Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi (president of Indian National Congress ) , Sitaram Yechury ( general secretary of The Communist Party of India (Marxist) ) , D. Raja (Communist Party of India secretary) , K. C. Tyagi (representative of Janata Dal (United)) , Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi chief minister and suprimo Aam Aadmi Party ) and many other Communist leaders ( leftists writers, Ex-media personalities ) had organised an event to honour kanhaiya kumar for his deeds . they too stated kumar as a great freedom struggler and condemned BJP and police to take action against such anti- national movements.
Some politicaly motivated actors, directors, producers, lyrics writers too supported this irrelevant anti-national rally.
However, the right wing were in favour of punishing such anti national elements .

KUMAR IS ALL SET FOR HIS POLITICAL CARRIER :-
Kanhaiya Kumar is set to contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Begusarai in Bihar.
Kumar will contest against the ruling JD(U)-BJP combine on a CPI ticket and it is expected that he will receive support from the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress, reported the Times of India.
Kumar told PTI,”If the party (CPI) decides to nominate me as its candidate from Begusarai and other grand alliance partners also extend their support, then I don’t have any objection to it”.
Asked if he will still contest the election if CPI decides to go alone in 2019 general elections, Kumar said, “Alliance is a certainty and party will not go it alone in elections. CPI’s party congress has passed a resolution under which it would work and coordinate in forming a grand alliance of which CPI will certainly be a part,” kumar said.
After a strong evidence against kanhaiya kumar and imposition of sedition act , congress has suddenly demanded to scrap the sedition act (they think its colonial hangover) however they used this act for 70 years and sentenced to seviour punishment to thousands of people . they supported this act and imposed sedition act on many hindu personality and stated them as BHAGWA ATHANKWAD but appose the same act in case of kanhaiya kumar. This shows the hyipocracy of Indian political parties.
His resent political stands had cleared his intention behind his drama ofbecaming a youth activist…..
