New Delhi: Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar has landed himself in a controversy for his remarks that he will name his wife and children as "Bharat Mata Ki Jai".

Kanhaiya, who is out on conditional bail in a case of sedition, said at an event that "they say, nation is everything, you have to chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai. So I thought when I will be married I will suggest my wife to bear the name 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. I will also name my children as 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' and change my name also as 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'."

"So when my children will go to school and teachers will ask them their parents' names, they will reply 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. This way they will get free education and they will not have to pay fees," he said.

The case of sedition against Kanhaiya was registered in connection with an event held on JNU campus on February 9, against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
