Here, Kanhaiya Kumar has targeted the central government over the arrest of Sharjeel Imam, accused of making inflammatory speeches in many parts of the country. Kanhaiya Kumar, while referring to the controversial speech of Union Minister Anurag Thakur, said that if the case was filed against Sharjeel, why was there no sedition case filed against Anurag Thakur for making such a statement.

Kanhaiya has also said that the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is working to put oil in the fire. While addressing a rally against the CAA and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) on Tuesday at Pathri in Parbhani, Maharashtra, Kanhaiya alleged that Modi and Shah had tried to create a confrontation between Hindus and Muslims during the Gujarat elections. Now they are trying the same tactics in the country.
