Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son in law and businessmen Robert Vadra in a Facebook post shared his views on the ongoing JNU controversy and said that he worries for the future of the youth and the country.
Here is what Robert posted on his Facebook account:
I worry for the future of our youth and the country. Suicide and agitation will increase if the simple focus is not on education to build their future, in this competitive world. We need peace and compassion in our society not hatred #JNU #Rohith. Mentors with their influence and leaders with authority to direct and change unconditionally, have a responsibility to help the next generation evolve to an even better India.
Robert Vadra expressed his viewpoint on Facebook after the JNU controversy and said that he was concerned about the future of India. He asked the leaders in power to settle such issues.
Yesterday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi visited JNU campus and condemned the action taken by the Center on JNU students. He asked the students not to allow the present government to silence their voices. Leaders from the Left parties and other senior Congress leaders including Anand Sharma were also present.
So far in the JNU controversy, the government has remained adamant that anyone who would be found indulging in anti-national activities or shouting anti-India slogans will not be spared.
The JNU controversy erupted after a group of students organized a cultural evening to mourn the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which some students raised anti-India slogans. ABVP students protested against the cultural evening after which a political fight escalated in the capital.
An FIR was filed against the cultural event organizers following which the police took JNUSU president into three-day custody.
