As the Jamia Millia Islamia students released the CCTV footage of Police hitting the students in the reading hall on December 15, both Congress and BJP have reacted to it on Sunday. Taking to Twitter, Uttar Pradesh General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has claimed that it is visible in the video that Police are hitting the students, which proves Home Minister and Delhi Police lied. She went on to add that even after seeing this video if no action is taken against those who resorted to violence after anti-CAA protest in Jamia last December, then the Central government's intentions would be exposed.
देखिए कैसे दिल्ली पुलिस पढ़ने वाले छात्रों को अंधाधुंध पीट रही है। एक लड़का किताब दिखा रहा है लेकिन पुलिस वाला लाठियां चलाए जा रहा है।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) February 16, 2020
गृह मंत्री और दिल्ली पुलिस के अधिकारियों ने झूठ बोला कि उन्होंने लाइब्रेरी में घुस कर किसी को नहीं पीटा।..1/2 pic.twitter.com/vusHAGyWLh
Meanwhile, BJP's Suresh Nakhua has called the video fake. Taking to Twitter, he has questioned why a student in the library was wearing a mask. He has claimed that these are not students but rioters.
