"The lathicharge on JNU students in Delhi was inhuman... The BJP would have created a ruckus in Parliament and organisations like ABVP would have given a call for nationwide bandh had such an incident taken place during the Congress rule," said the Shiv Sena in the editorial of 'Saamana', its mouthpiece.
"The police force which thrashes visually-challenged ones cannot be servants of people and protectors of law. Do not trample down at least the students. No government should run amok in this manner," it added.
"The university, however, has also produced Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee, some of the top politicians and experts," Saamana said.
The Shiv Sena added that the students should also have to maintain discipline. No one will support the action of Students of crossing the barricades during the protest, the party observed.
