Kejriwal had joined the protest where he lambasted the Centre accusing it of waging a "war" against students and voiced his support for 'Rohith Act', a law proposed by the agitating students against discrimination in Universities.

Addressing protesters, Radhika had attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking "what action did you take against your minister who had called my son anti-national?" She also condemned the "attacks" on students in universities including JNU and said such things "should be stopped".
