Surjewala asked “Is it justified that the BJP government enters the library and hostel at Jamia University and throw tear gas and beat up the students
New Delhi: The Congress on Sunday blamed the Centre’s BJP government for the police action on the Jamia Milia Islamia campus, accused it of having failed in its duty to maintain peace in India and leaving even Delhi burning after Assam, Tripura, and Meghalaya.
“From the North East to Assam, West Bengal and now in National capital. The BJP government has failed in its duty to maintain peace in the country. They must take responsibility and maintain peace in India,” the Congress said on its official Twitter handle.
Congress leader Randeep Surjewala asked if it was justified that the police entered the Jamia University campus library and beat up students and lob tear gas shells at them.
“Delhi is burning, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya are burning. Violence is spreading in Bengal, the Home Minister does not have the courage to go to the northeast, Japan PM’s visit had to be canceled, but Modiji is happy doing the election campaign in Jharkhand.
“Those who oppose it are dubbed as traitors and Jamia Mila Islamia is the recent example of this,” Surjewala said.
Surjewala asked “Is it justified that the BJP government enters the library and hostel at Jamia University and throw tear gas and beat up the students. Can students not protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 which is a blow on the soul of the Constitution,”.
The police had to enter the Jamia university after violent agitation erupted on the campus and later some government and private property was also vandalized around the University and New Friends colony area around it.
