Kanhaiya Kumar's parents confident that he will come out clean: CPI

New Delhi: The attack on JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar inside Patiala House court complex has left his parents "worried", but they are showing "exemplary courage" at this difficult juncture and are confident he will come out clean, CPI said on Thursday.

CPI general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy said the party men are in "regular" touch with his parents who have shown confidence in the organization during this "crisis" hour.

Kanhaiya is a leader of All India Students' Federation (AISF), students' wing of CPI. His parents live in Bihat village of Bihar's Begusarai district.

"One of our colleagues spoke to them (Kanhaiya's parents) yesterday. Naturally, they are worried...yesterday there was an attack on him. But they are showing exemplary courage at this difficult moment. His parents said they have full confidence in the party," Reddy told PTI.

The leader said Kanhaiya's family is poor and can't afford even a television set and they watch news on neighbour's TV.

"His mother is an anganwadi worker. His father is suffering from partial paralytic stroke. I spoke to him the other day. They are courageous and they are confident that he will come out clean," he added.

A group of lawyers had on Wednesday attacked Kanhaiya, arrested on sedition charges, while he was being produced at the court complex.
