Delhi: The opposition parties held a press conference on Monday at the Constitution Club in which they attacked the Centre’s decision to implement the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and also condemned police action on Jamia Millia University.
Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad addressed the joint Opposition Press Conference and condemned the police action against Jamia students who were protesting against the new citizenship amendment law. The press conference was joined by Kapil Sibal, Sitaram Yechury, Manoj K Jha Sharad Yadav among others.
“Police can never enter the University without the permission of Vice Chancellor and other authorities. If University administration did not give the permission to Delhi police to enter the University, library and toilets where girl students were yelling for help, how could they get in. It is absolutely condemnable. We demand a judicial inquiry. The Delhi Police falls under the Centre government,” Azad said.
We are here to condemn what happened in Jamia. This is unacceptable. No police can enter the University without permission. They switched off the lights and beaten up students: Sitaram Yechury.
We are together and will protest against it. Supreme Court will be taking up the matter on December 18: Congress leader Kapil Sibal on CAA showdown.
Where is the Home Minister? What is Amit Shah’s response on use of force on Jamia students, asked CPI’s D Raja at the press conference.
We all were part of student politics in our days but police never entered the University without the permission of administration and the Registrar: Ghulam Nabi Azad.
