BJP MP Mahesh Giri on Saturday levelled serious allegations against CPI leader D Raja's daughter Aparajita, saying she was present during the anti-India protest in JNU and was raising slogans. Mahesh Giri also shared a video on Twitter in which D Raja's daughter was shown raising slogans. However, in the video, Aparajita was not seen raising any controversial slogans. She was seen raising slogans against the ABVP.
D Raja, however, defended his daughter, saying nobody can raise questions on the patriotism and the integrity of him and his daughter. Meanwhile, D Raja and CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury met Home Minister Rajnath Singh over the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar. Rajnath assured them that no innocent students will be targeted.
