Shri D. Raja


Raja raised the issue of JNU students' protests in Parliament budget session. He sought immediate release of JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar. He also came in defence of his daughter, a student in the same university who joined the protests and sloganeering. A BJP leader in Tamil Nadu, H. Raja, proclaimed that D. Raja should shoot his daughter for shouting anti-national slogans to prove his patriotism. The BJP top brass, however, rejected H.Raja's statements. Moreover, a resident of Rai Bareilly petitioned to lodge an FIR against D. Raja and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for supporting anti-national activities at JNU.
