Speaking over the Jamia Milia mishappening, Aam Aadmi Party has demanded a judicial inquiry into the violent incident on Monday. The students of the University were beaten up by the police administration on December 15 when they were protesting against the Citizenship Act in Jamia Nagar.
AAP leader Gopal Rai shared the party’s official stand over the incident through a tweeted post. The message read- “The AAP demands a judicial inquiry into the entire incident of protests in Jamia yesterday. The party demands that the real culprits behind the violence should be punished. We do not support any violence and we appeal to students to maintain peace.”
He further questioned the role of vice-chancellor in the alleged incident. He also asked how did police manage to enter Jamia Millia Islamia University.
The national capital woke up to a disturbing picture on Monday when the news of the alleged assault of the students reached the national headlines. Congress party even organized a ‘symbolic protest‘ to show its solidarity for the students.
Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav said, “Students were protesting peacefully. Then some vehicles were burnt somewhere else by unknown people. After that, the students were beaten by the police. This invited reactions. As a result, there were protests in Aligarh and Lucknow.” The leader said that that it is the Constitution that has given the right to protest peacefully, then how can police did lathi charge and beat students? He also called for an emergency session of the parliament over the amendments of the bill and said either amend the law or revoke it.
