Gorakhpur: Firebrand BJP MP Yogi Adityanath today said anti-India slogan shouting at JNU shows that some "anti-national elements" were active in the university.

The Gorakhpur MP said there is a limit to freedom of expression and using it for indulging in anti-national activities was "unpardonable".

"The action taken in JNU case is justified and in national interest. Anti-national slogan shouting in JNU shows that some anti-national elements are active there," Adityanath told reporters.

He said there is a "limit to free of speech and expression and taking its benefit if anti-national activities are done, it is unpardonable".

JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested last week in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy registered over holding of the event at the varsity during which anti-India slogans were alleged to have been raised.

The BJP leader demanded strict action against those involved in anti-national activities.

"There is a need for initiating strict action against those involved in activities that are not in national interest. The government should strictly deal with such anti-national activities going on in JNU", he added.

The MP had last week termed the anti-national protests at the JNU as signs of "educational lawlessness prevailing on the campus".
