"Country and the world saw how masked attackers entered JNU campus in Delhi and wreaked havoc in a planned manner. The police kept waiting for permission to enter the JNU campus to take some action. Those who were sitting inside the institution knew how much time the attackers will take to flee. This was a well planned and articulated attack on the University," said Akhilesh Yadav.

"The BJP can attack anybody. Be it Varanasi or Jamia violence in all BJP people are with the police. BJP wants to destroy the democracy and institutions in this country," he said.
