“I gave my consent because he had installed it at his own cost,” Mr Pandey said adding that he hopes that Mr Kumar will take back his decision to join the Congress.

Mr Pandey further said, “I still hope that Kanhaiya Kumar will not join Congress because his mindset is communist and such people are strict with their ideology.”

Mr Pandey also mentioned that Kanhaiya had participated in CPI’s National Executive Council meeting held on September 4 and 5 in the national capital, and that, “During the meeting, he never gave any intention of leaving the party, nor did he demand any specific party post.”

The former JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar Manch (RDAM) MLA Jignesh Mewani from Gujarat are expected to join the Congress party today.
