Amidst the raging JNU row, BJP also dismissed as "baseless and wrong" Gandhi's accusations that the party was muzzling the youth by branding them as "anti-nationals" and said that the issue was not between the government and any institution but between the country and traitors.
    
"On the JNU incident, Rahul Gandhi had leveled some accusations against our party. They are baseless, wrong and ineffective. Rahul Gandhi instead of trying to be a leader has become a principal misleader of Indian politics.
    
"His remarks in Assam over arrest of (JNU students' union leader) Kanhaiya Kumar is a proof of his willingness to twist the truth. Kanhaiya was arrested because of remarks and slogans which he raised which were anti-national," BJP national spokesperson MJ Akbar said.
