JNU students’ union President Kanhaiya Kumar is now focusing on his political career.

“Kanhaiya Kumar is focusing more on his political career. Ever since he came out of the jail, he has been on a visiting spree. Kanhaiya is being called as a speaker at prominent events, along with other panelists consisting of eminent educationists and academicians of the country,” a senior Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) official told a Newspaper.

Though Kanhaiya has been keeping away from the tag of a politician, experts said he is already on his way to become a political leader.

“All his recent speeches are focused at taking jibes at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government. He is not focusing specifically on students’ issues,” another University professor said.

Meanwhile, a delegation of JNU students on Monday met officials at NHRC over the alleged crackdown and arrest of students in Hyderabad Central University and demanded concrete actions against its Vice Chancellor Appa Rao in connection with the Rohith Vemula issue.

Kanhaiya’s colleagues in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and All India Students Federation (AISF), the student wing to which he belongs, have also created a WhatsApp group to spread information about his daily schedule and the events which he will be addressing.
