Union Minister Smriti Irani on Friday accused the Left of orchestrating the JNU violence.

She took to Twitter and said: "Left design in JNU unmasked. They led mobs of mayhem, destroyed public property paid for by taxpayers, disallowed new students from being enrolled, used the campus as a political battleground. #LeftBehindJNUViolence becomes public knowledge as @DelhiPolice releases evidence."

Earlier she had lashed out at actress Deepika Padukone for standing in solidarity with students who were beaten up. The minister had accused the actress of taking the side of "people who celebrate when CRPF men are killed in Naxal attacks."
