Adding further, the Congress leader said, "Students of Kalladka school had enacted Babri Masjid demolition incident defying all the laws & mocking the judiciary. Was this not an act of sedition to Yediyurappa and the BJP."
The Congress leader even lashed out at the Police authorities and spoke about the incident of open firing at the universities in Delhi.
