Addressing students at the campus, 29-year-old Kumar, who has been slapped with sedition charge for allegedly raising anti-national slogans, said he had many differences with the Prime Minister but he agreed with his tweet "Satyameva Jayate" which he had posted in praise of HRD Minister Smriti Irani's fiery speech in Lok Sabha on the JNU row as it is in the Constitution.

"I have many differences with the PM but I agree with his tweet Satyameva Jayate because these words are in our Constitution," he said, as his passionate speech was punctuated by repeated cheers and raising of slogans.

"We are not seeking 'azaadi'(freedom) from India. We want 'azaadi' within India," he said. Thanking all who stood by him while he was in Tihar jail here, Kumar said he believed in the Constitution and Judiciary of India.

Kumar said he had no ill feelings towards anyone and won’t indulge in "witch hunting" towards  ABVP. "There is no animosity towards ABVP because we are democratic. We see them as our opposition," he added.

"We truly believe in democracy and Constitution. We don’t look at the ABVP as an enemy, we look at them like the Opposition," Kumar said. "Let me just say it is not easy to get admission in JNU neither it is easy to silence those in Varsity," he added.
