Kanhaiya Kumar files nomination from Begusarai


Former JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar, contesting as the CPI candidate, on Tuesday filed his nomination for the Begusarai Lok Sabha seat in Bihar.

Hundreds of people, mostly youths, joined Kanhaiya Kumar during a two-kilometre march on foot, cycle and two-wheelers waving red flags in the town.

Kanhaiya Kumar will take on Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh in Begusarai.

Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested in February 2016 and accused of sedition for allegedly doing nothing to prevent the raising of anti-India slogans on the JNU campus.
