Activists, lawyers, Bollywood celebrities… they all find JNUSU president’s speech, press conference moving
GN Bureau | March 4, 2016
Kanhaiya Kumar has captured the imagination of many with his measured, calm and yet witty words during his speech Thursday night and the press conference on Friday. He was ‘trending’ on the social media, with all-round praise from all quarters – except, of course, a couple of snide remarks from BJP quarters (Paresh Raval, for example) and the folks who are now facing the allegation of doctoring the evidence (but for them, this “people’s hero” would not have become a celebrity today).
Here are some tweets on Kanhaiya:

Super speech by #KanhaiyaKumar. And great to see the energy in JNU. A bit disappointed at the lack of the naked dancing I had heard about.— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) March 3, 2016
