"I never knew so many people liked Kanhaiya and he inspired people so much. Though he is in jail today, we are proud of him.
"For any boy from our village going to JNU is an impossible task and Kanhaiya making it there and garnering support not only from his friends but intellectuals across the globe has made us optimistic," Kanhaiya's uncle Rajendra Singh said while addressing students at the varsity last night.
Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Singh said, "Our ancestors were part of the freedom struggle, people from our village had confronted the Britishers and a boy from same village is being called a terrorist for raising his voice. Modiji called himself a 'chai wala' and now he is not saying anything when a farmer's son is being targeted."
Kanhaiya's uncle and brother, who are in Delhi to meet him in Tihar jail, visited the varsity's administration block last night where students are agitating against the student leader's arrest over an on-campus event against parliament attack convict Afzal Guru's hanging.
