Jhanvi Behal, 15 from Ludhiana has been in the news from few days as she has asked Kanhaiya Kumar, JNUSU president, for an open debate with her on the allegations he has slapped on PM Modi and on freedom of expression.
What Kanhaiya ji said about Prime Minister Modi wasn’t appreciable at all. Instead of criticising the PM, he should have said something on those who raised anti-national slogans in the campus,” Jhanvi told ANI.
She is of the opinion that no one can simply criticize about the PM as the PM is elected by people of the nation and in this way he is going against the people of India.
What has happened in JNU campus in the name freedom of expression is not tolerable for any Indian. The students were raising anti-India slogans, when armymen were sacrificing their lives fighting against Pakistan sponsored terrorists,” Jhanvi told Hindustan Times.
