Talking to media, Mr Javadekar hit out at the Opposition parties alleging that they are using them for political purpose.

"Today's revelation by police was very important because the malafide campaign which was launched for the last 3 to 4 days was painting ABVP as black and the only culprit but today it has been known that it was started by CPI and CP(M)'s students organiszation and Jawahar Lal University Students  Union ."

"The Utility and services charges, we are keeping it on hold and the only charges, the hostel charges the students have to pay is 300 rupees per month room rent. So beyond that there is no other expenditure to the students. And that is way we have been appealing to the students that it is just only the room rent you have to pay and all other demands have been met."
