We want to tell them, we are with them and we will stand for them every time. I condemn the way police are controlled. We stand by the students and they are our inspiration.”

He further added, “We aren’t fools. We are watching. We know how riots are caused, how these situations are created. We can see what you want to do and what’s your intention and where you are taking us. We won’t let you take us there.” Swara Bhasker added, “We have reached that stage in this country where we have shown enough respect to the government, the law and order machinery, which have repeatedly failed to fulfil their responsibility.”
