Congress today virtually disapproved of party leader Shashi Tharoor comparing JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, facing sedition charges, with freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.

“There has been only one Bhagat Singh. There is only one Bhagat Singh”, party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters when asked about Tharoor’s remarks which has sparked a controversy.

BJP has accused Tharoor of insulting the legendary freedom fighter.

Addressing a group of students in JNU last night, Tharoor, while listing the names of victims of sedition law under British rule had said Bhagat Singh was the Kanhaiya Kumar of his time.
