In a sarcastic position, the left-wing leader urged the police and government officials to take the matter “seriously” to ensure justice in a court of law rather than a “trial on television.”
“Thank you Delhi Government for granting permission in the incitement case. Police of Delhi and government officials are being asked to take this matter seriously, a fast track court must be tried quickly and justice is guaranteed in court instead of the “court” of TV. Satyameva Jayate, “he said in one chatter in Hindi.

“There is a need for fast action and fast track courts in incitement cases so that the country can find out how this law has been abused for political gain and to distract people from fundamental issues,” he said in another tweet.

Earlier today, the government of Delhi gave the green light to the city police to prosecute Kanhaiya Kumar and nine others, including Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya in connection with a sedition of four years old.
The sanction was granted on February 20 by the Government of Delhi.
AAP MLA and spokesman Raghav Chadha said that the Legal Department of the Government of Delhi has given its opinion on this to the Home Department after due care.
Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari welcomed the development, but said the Kejriwal government might have given approval for the “current political situation”.
On January 14, the police had filed a complaint against Kanhaiya and others. Police said the accused was leading a procession and had supported the inflammatory slogans reportedly staged at the JNU campus during an event on February 9, 2016.
