wrote Sinha on Twitter, the platform which he uses frequently to launch attacks against his party.

Kumar is facing sedition charges for allegedly shouting anti-national slogans during an event organised at JNU campus last week to protest the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru on his third death anniversary.

As the Jawaharlal Nehru University(JNU) row escalated, Sinha also countered the claim by some BJP leaders that the prestigious varsity has become the hub of anti-national activities.

Sinha also said that any accusations in the JNU controversy needed to be substantiated with hard facts.

    I think Mr. S. Sinha is very much against his party ideologies. I do not understand as to why he has joined BJP and blaming them for each and every steps they take. As a gentle man he has to resign from the post and do not indulge in any comments while enjoying BJP status. It is like living in Indian and chanting slogans against India. We are all Indians, minorities are well looked after in India compare to any other country, the real freedom is enjoyed in India than anywhere in the world.
