NEW DELHI, Feb 19: Scores of lawyers, including those who defied police summons over the violence in a Delhi court complex, took out a protest march today even as the JNU row sparked clashes between rival student groups in Jaipur and police action in Hyderabad where several people were detained.
"We were protesting to demand that the main accused in the JNU incident should be arrested because there is no evidence against the JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar," NSUI leader Rakesh Meena said.
Following is the complete order of the Supreme Court transferring the bail plea of JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar to Delhi High Court.
"We deem it appropriate to request the High Court to take such appropriate steps as it deems fit and proper to ensure the peaceful conduct of the proceedings. "We request the Delhi High Court to consider the application expeditiously and pass appropriate orders in accordance with law.
Meanwhile, the Modi government faced more flak from the opposition over the escalating JNU row with chief ministers of Bihar and Delhi on Friday alleging it has triggered an emotional issue to "hide its failure" on economic front and that opposing BJP and RSS has become the "biggest crime".
"Since they have failed miserably on economic front after making tall claims during 2014 Parliamentary elections, they (BJP and RSS) have triggered an emotional issue (JNU event) to hide the failure," Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar told reporters emerging from a meeting of state cabinet in Patna.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said opposing BJP and RSS is the "biggest" crime under the present dispensation and accused it of failing to act against its sympathisers who indulge in criminal activities.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said he did not need lessons on patriotism from RSS and BJP , which have accused him of supporting "anti-nationals" over the JNU row .
"I don't need to take lesson from BJP and RSS.... Rastrabhakti mere khoon me hai (Patriotism is in my blood)," Rahul said when asked about his support to JNU students and the protests by BJP.     ?PTI
