Minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju says the Congress and the Left orchestrated the violence at JNU and at the courts. He spoke to Meetu Jain. Excerpts:

On l’afffaire JNU: There are two issues. The raising of anti-India slogans where sedition charges have been framed. And a law and order situation at the courts. If there are lapses on the part of the police, corrective steps must be taken. We cannot protect anybody if there has been an attack, whether on journalists or others.
