Addressing the media on the occasion of Bharatiya Jana Yuva Morcha’s National Executive meeting in Mathura on Friday, Thakur said, "It would not be right to question the entire JNU institution for the acts of some people. The need of the hour is to identify such people and address them."

Thakur was answering questions in the wake of JNU controversy and the bail of JNU Students Union President Kanhaiya Kumar, whom the Delhi police charged with sedition. Thakur, the Lok Sabha MP from Hamirpur, slammed the Congress for vitiating the atmosphere in the country to halt the BJP Government’s march towards development.

"This national executive meeting is important because it is happening at a time when some political forces and people are vitiating the country’s atmosphere and dividing people. Some political leaders are fully backing these people and their agenda.

"Those who have lost their relevance and mandate among people of this country are now doing all they can to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development agenda. The youth of the country need to be apprised with all this," Thakur said adding that the executive will debate the current political environment in the context of the raging national versus anti national debate.

He also said that poll strategy in election bound states will also be discussed apart from the strategy in UP, which he said, "Helped make PM Modi the PM by giving a huge mandate in Lok Sabha elections to the BJP".

Thakur said the venue of the executive – Vrindavan in Mathura – held a special significance as it was the birthplace of Lord Krish and Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyay, the Sangh ideologue.
