It is upto my party, CPI, to go about it: Kanhaiya on contesting 2019 Lok Sabha polls

Former JNU student union president Kanhaiya Kumar told The Indian Express  that he was open to contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. However, ultimately it would his party, CPI and the alliance’s call.

He said his party had not started the process of sending recommendations of probable candidates yet.

“I have always said that I am keen to join the parliamentary process. But it is my party that has to take a call on it by starting the due process. Whether I contest or not is not important. What is important is the need to stitch together a united front. I have been meeting young leaders across the country under my programme ‘Save Constitution, Save India’,” he said.
