Priyanka Chopra who Goodwill Ambassador took to her twitter handle and wrote, “Education for every child is our dream. Education is what empowered them to think independently.

Wonder if this is a start or the end. Whatever it is, this is surely writing new rules of the land and those who don’t fit in can very well see the consequences.— taapsee pannu (@taapsee) December 16, 2019

In 1987 I made a film called Yeh Woh Manzil Toh Nahin on the background of student politics . Towards the climax the police enter the campus and brutally beat up the students . Nothing has changed . Terrible that now we know where the flowers gone . Crushed !— Sudhir Mishra (@IAmSudhirMishra) December 16, 2019
I strongly condemn the violence that the police have shown in dealing with the students. In a democracy the citizens have the right to peacefully protest.I also condemn any kind of act of destruction of the public properties. Violence is not the solution for anything!— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) December 16, 2019
JNU, FTII, AMU, Nalanda, BHU, Cotton University, Jamia Milia ... scared of students much? This is not a coincidence.— TheRichaChadha (@RichaChadha) December 15, 2019
