Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student union president Kanhaiya Kumar gave an electrifying speech in the university premises after his release from the jail on Thursday. He lashed out at the government and said he had faith in the constitution and the judiciary of India. Here are the highlights of his address:

 
 
  • The ABVP in our campus is more rational as compared to ABVP outside our campus 
     
  • No ill feelings for anyone. I won’t indulge in witch hunting. 
  • There is no animosity towards ABVP because we are democratic. We see them as our opposition # PM tweeted and said ‘satyamev jayate’. I want to convey this to him that i also say the same thing 
  • We Indians forget easily but we still remember all the ‘Jumla’ used during election campaign 
     
  • If you speak against the govt then their cyber cell will send your doctored videos and count the number of condoms in your hostel 
  • A BJP MP in parliament said that ‘jawans’ are dying on the border but what about all the farmers who commit suicide 
  • We are not asking for freedom from India but asking for freedom in India 
  • Want freedom from ‘Sanghi’ 
  • Not asking for freedom from India but freedom in India 
  • It is a planned conspiracy against JNU
  • PM Modi talks about ‘mann ki baat’ but doesn’t listen 
  • Those speaking for JNU are being threatened and abused. What kind of nationalism is this? 
  • 69 per cent people of this country voted against their ideology. Only 31 per cent are those who were fooled by their ‘Jumlebaazi’
  • This is a long fight and we have to carry this forward. Inside and outside campus
  • Once again let's raise slogans for freedom - not from India, but within India.
     
  • Freedom from hunger, poverty, the caste system - all of that.
