UN violence: the time has come for the BJP government to leave, says Chhattisgarh CM

RAIPUR: Prime Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Monday condemned the violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi and said it was time for BJP Government in the center to go.

Violence had erupted in JNU on Sunday night when masked men armed with sticks and bars attacked students and teachers and damaged property on campus, after which police conducted a flag march.

Speaking to reporters at the Police Lines helipad here, Baghel said, Not only in JNU, but what happened earlier in other universities shows the BJP is suppressing students.

He said the BJP must remember it was students' power that had brought the party to power earlier, but these same students were now being suppressed by the NDA government.

The time has now come for the BJP government to go, he said.
