In last two days, a lot of big names have entered the Delhi University row and have given their opinion on violence in Ramjas college. Yesterday, it was cricketer Virender Sehwag who took away all the thunder with his reply to Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of a Kargil martyr and today, the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal jumped in her support by targeting Bharatiya Janata Party. The Delhi CM took to twitter to question BJP’s idea of patriotism and asked how does giving rape threats to women count under patriotism. He said he feels disgusted about the entire episode.

He even shared a video of Gurmehar Kaur asking people to watch it and said that the part will destroy the country. “Just listen to this. THIS is BJP. They will destroy our country. Everyone must rise against their goondaism,” read Kejriwal’s tweet.Earlier in the day, Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of the Kargil martyr said that she doesn’t need to prove her nationalism. She came into controversy after posting pictures on the social media network.

Watch DU students speaking about the matter:

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju reacted in an interview with CNN news, and said Gurmehar Kaur is misguided. He reminds the DU youth that we are sharing the air of this country, we are drinking the water of this country and we must appreciate it. “Kargil war must not be exploited,” he says. After Gurmehar’s complaint, Swati Maliwal, the DCW Chief said, “She has given us a complete list of names who have been threatening her on social media. We have sent the letter to Delhi Police and I have personally talked to the Commissioner of Delhi Police.
