Congress leader from Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh has opposed the Tiranga Yatra carried out by the students from Aligarh Muslim University.
He said that the rally could have caused riots in a sensitive place like Aligarh,
"Tiranga is our pride but students should have taken permission. This is a sensitive place. Last time riots took place in Kaskanj when Tiranga Yatra was taken out. Last time riots took place in Kaskanj when Tiranga Yatra was taken out, " Parvez Ahmad, member of AICC.
This has been the only reaction from the Congress. Senior leaders from the party have been silent on the issue of Tiranga Yatra.
On January 23, the Congress itself had tweeted a video saying that the tricolour evokes pride in every Indian. It tweeted hailing the "historic Supreme Court Judgement" that allowed Indians to display the National Flag.
The Aam Aadmi Party has also reacted to the Tiranga Yatra issue in Aligarh Muslim University.
The party leader Sanjay Singh has said that RSS and BJP have no right to speak on the Tiranga Yatra issue as the RSS has not unfurled the tricolour in its Nagpur headquarters.
The Aligarh Muslim University has issued a showcause notice to two students who held a Tiranga Yatra on Tuesday. The students had held a bike rally chanting Vande Mataram earlier in the day. The rally was carried from the Education Department to the Baba Syed Gate, to remember the sacrifice of the freedom fighters ahead of Republic Day.
The students have written to AMU questioning the notice and have alleged bias against them by the University.
