Kanhaiya Kumar Is Back And This Is How Twitter Reacted To His Speech
Jawaharlal Nehru University student leader Kanhaiya Kumar who was released from jail on bail received a hero’s welcome at the campus on Thursday evening. In a defiant speech, he took shots at the government tearing into charges of sedition against him and said he had faith in India’s Constitution and democracy.
“We don’t want freedom from India, we want freedom in India,” Kanhaiya thundered in his speech, drawing long pauses of claps and whistles from the audience.
From Arvind Kejriwal to Meenakshi Lekhi, here’s how the Tweeple reacted to the whole situation:

If you're driven by hate, anger and stupidity, you score self-goals like arresting a man as brilliant as #KanhaiyaKumar for sedition.

एक भाषण से हीरो बन सकते थे. पागल थे सरहद पर खून बहा दिया.

Can't remember the last time a speech by a youth leader (or a communist!) got so much attention. #KanhaiyaKumar

Super speech by #KanhaiyaKumar. And great to see the energy in JNU. A bit disappointed at the lack of the naked dancing I had heard about.
