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.
