Violence in JNU is a clear case of conspiracy: Congress
New Delhi : A day after major violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru (JNU) left the students across the nation filled with anger, the Congress attacked BJP and claimed that the incident is a clear 'case of conspiracy'; adding that it reminds them of the Nazi rule 90 years back.
Demanding a strict action against the attackers, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said, ''There are several questions that have to be answered. How were masked people allowed to enter the campus? Who allowed them? What was the Vice-Chancellor doing? Why didn`t the Vice-Chancellor call police immediately? While violence was going on, why was Police standing outside? What was the Commissioner of Police doing? What was the Home Minister doing? All these questions are unanswered."
The Congress leader then said that it is a clear case of conspiracy and strict action must be taken in the matter.
In a separate press briefing, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, ''The entire country witnessed state-sponsored goondaism and terrorism yesterday in the campus of JNU. All this happened under the watch of JNU administration and also Delhi Police which is directly controlled by Home Minister Amit Shah.''
On Sunday evening, around 32 students and JNU staff members were injured after a masked mob entered JNU and attacked them with sticks and rods.
