Kapil Sibal

Senior leader Wednesday demanded that the law be scrapped as those in power are "manipulating" it.

He also called for a change in the government to save the country.

"Scrap law (section 124A,IPC), a colonial hangover.

"Real is when those in power manipulate institutions, misuse the law, breach peace and security by inciting violence. Punish them in 2019. 'Sarkar badlo Desh bachao' (change government, save country)," Sibal said on Twitter.

His reaction come two days after former JNUSU president and others were slapped sedition charges in a charge sheet filed in the court.
