In an attack on communists, BJP national vice president, Vinay Sahasrabuddhe called them self-proclaimed custodians of intellectualism, and said that we should feel proud to say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. He was delivering a speech on the topic ‘JNU Prakaran aur Pragtisheel Aatankvad’. Calling the JNU episode part of a well-planned strategy he said that slogans like ‘Bharat tere tukre honge’ are not to be taken lightly.
He said that communists’ want to disintegrate the country with their agenda. He also said that Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar associated communist’ with two things – force and violence and under the garb of objectivity they are spreading violence and force.  

MLA and Mumbai unit president, Ashish Shelar said that prime minister Narendra Modi in his address at the Madison Square in New York on September 28, 2014, spoke on the demographic dividend of India where 65% population is under 35 years. Later he came up with initiatives like Stand up India, Skill India, Startup India and then Make in India which rattled his opponents. Fearing increasing support of young people for the prime minister, his opponents became insecure and set out their own agenda of making educational institutes, their centres of agitation. Giving examples of FTII agitation, Rohit Vermula case in Hyderabad University and the JNU episode, Shelar said opponents tried to tarnish the image of the country internationally.
Targeting media Shelar said that media projected Modi’s fall from power after Arvind Kejriwal won Delhi elections. When that didn’t bear fruit, they started putting the spotlight on Hardik Patel in Gujarat. When that too did not work out, they got Kanhaiya Kumar to light.

Supreme court advocate, Monika Arora said that in the JNU episode, out of seven videos, five are authentic. Videos that show assembly and sloganeering are authentic which has also been confirmed by internal security committee of JNU. After ABVP had asked for cancellation of the event, Kanhaiya fought with the administration against doing so. Presence of Kashmiri elements in JNU was because they were allowed to enter JNU campus despite not having I-cards necessary for entry. This is because Kanhaiya Kumar told the security personnel to allow them in. “I say it with confidence that this was not a disciplinary issue or a student gathering against administration but a gathering of Maoists, Naxals and Kashmiri separatists”, she said. She also said that Khalid had made 800 calls to Gulf, Bangladesh and Kashmir. Khalid went to receive maoist Hem Mishra when he was released from Nagpur jail.
