Welcoming bail granted to Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, he said all parties and people supporting democracy must come forward to demand abolishing the British-era law.

"Those who are supporting democracy should come together. It will be a long battle. We have been given the bail. We will go on with our struggle to ensure that the sedition law is scrapped," Kanhaiya said.
    
Umar and Anirban, arrested last month on charges of sedition for their involvement in a controversial event organised to protest hanging of Afzal Guru, were today granted interim bail for six months by a Delhi court on ground of parity with Kanhaiya.
    
"I have been to jail. I know what it feels to be there. I am glad our comrades will be back but the struggle will continue," said Kanhaiya.
