New Delhi: After fresh footage of Jamia Millia Islamia library emerged showing students purportedly carrying stones inside and blocking doors, the BJP went all out to hit out at the Congress and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for questioning the role of police in the incident.
In a no hold barred attack on the Congress, BJP MP G.V.L. Narasimha Rao alleged, “Constantly speaking in favour of those who endanger the security of the country has become the policy of Congress today.”
“Rahul Gandhi did not express any condolences to the soldiers who were martyred in Pulwama two days ago, but raised questions against the military forces. Priyanka Vadra also blamed the police without understanding the subject,” he added.
Referring to the purported video, Rao said the video is available with the Delhi police. “Some videos of Jamia University are running in the media, on which we say that Delhi Police has those videos. Stones are visible in the hands of the students, are they students or have people from outside come to spread chaos. If these are students then why are the faces hidden?,” the BJP MP asked.
While taking up observations of the Chief Justice of India on December 16 while hearing cases pertaining to Jamia and AMU, Rao asked, all those who are siding with the rioters must tell how can the police stand as mute spectators when rioters take law into their hands?
“We strongly condemn the attempts by Congress to give political colour to the violent incidents that took place in and around Jamia University. It’s their character to side with the forces that are inimical to the police and security forces of the country,” Rao charged.
Making a political charge, Rao added, “The country knows how Sonia Gandhi wept uncontrollably at the sight of deaths of some Islamic terrorists but she chose not to have a word of sympathy for the police inspector who died in the same Batla House encounter. Priyanka Vadra is truly following on her footsteps.”
The fresh purported footage from Jamia Millia Islamia library has brought the role of the students under question.
