Politics has intensified over a video of a senior Uttar Pradesh police officer who allegedly asked some protesters to go to Pakistan during anti-citizenship amendment law demonstrations

The Congress and other opposition parties are also targeting the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, criticizing the officer seen in this video. At the same time, some BJP leaders are defending it as natural reaction to the police officer's defense.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of 'making the institutions communal' based on this video.

He tweeted this video and wrote, "The Constitution of India does not allow the use of this language with any citizen. And when you are an officer in important positions, then the responsibility increases."

Priyanka writes after this, "The BJP has declared communal poison in institutions so much that today the officers have no respect for the oath of the Constitution."

What is the matter

In fact, a video of Meerut SP City Akhilesh Narayan Singh is going viral on social media, in which he is allegedly telling the locals about some people, 'Tell them if you don't like living in the country then go to Pakistan. Go.'

However, according to news agency ANI, in relation to this video, SP Akhilesh Narayan Singh said, "On seeing us, some boys shouted slogans of Pakistan Zindabad and started running away. I told them that if Pakistan would raise slogans of Zindabad and hate India Do you go to Pakistan if you hit the stones. We are identifying them. "

IG Prashant Kumar of Meerut has also defended the officer of his department by taking this video. He said, "There was stone pelting, sloganeering in opposition to India and support of the neighboring country."

"The situation was very tense. Had it been normal, the words would have been better. But the conditions were sensitive that day. Our officers showed a lot of restraint. There was no firing from the police."

Opposition leaders are criticizing

The Congress is celebrating its 135th Foundation Day today and is holding rallies across the country with the message of 'Save the Constitution - Save India'.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh has also raised objection by tweeting about the viral video of SP of Meerut. He wrote, "I am surprised to see the SP of Meerut telling the Muslims to go to Pakistan. The Muslims had chosen to stay in India by rejecting Pakistan because they had got the Constitution of India and Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Abul Kalam Azad." Leadership was trusted. "

At the same time, AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted this video, "I have tried with utmost vigor to curb fundamentalism among the Muslims of India. This officer is doing my efforts in vain."

BJP leaders are defending

Senior BJP leader and former Union Minister Uma Bharti has defended the Meerut police officer by tweeting one after the other.

He said that 'Pakistan is raising slogans of Zindabad and abusing the mother and sisters of the police, it is a natural reaction to go to Pakistan from the rioters who are arson.'

Uma Bharti also said that Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are making it a political issue under 'abominable intrigue'.

Uma Bharti said that she is with SP Akhilesh Narayan Singh of Meerut.

BJP's IT in-charge Amit Malviya has also defended this video. He tweeted a video purifying the SP, and wrote that some journalists are trying to discredit the Uttar Pradesh police for performing its duty because the state is ruled by the BJP.

He then writes, "If Pakistan wants to raise the slogan of Zindabad, then go to Pakistan. It is correct to say in every way. If you riot, the police will take action; Aarti will not take off."
