The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students’ union leader is in Nagpur to address a meeting to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar, a Dalit icon whom Kumar considers his role-model.
Progressive Students’ Youth Action Committee has organised the meeting and several right-wing organisations have threatened to foil Kanhaiya’s meeting in Nagpur.
