“Azad Maidan has better toilets”: Watch Mumbai Police evict protestors from Gateway of India and relocate to Azad Maidan

Some of the 'protestors' at Mumbai last evening were seen holding 'Free Kashmir' posters.

The protestors in Mumbai who were protesting against the violence perpetrated by left-wing goons on JNU campus on Sunday evening were evicted from Gateway of India by Mumbai Police and shifted to Azad Maidan.

One can see one women chant “Mumbai Police haaye haaye” while recording it on her phone, perhaps to post on social media later, as she is being taken away in the police van.

Mumbai Police DCP (Zone 1) Sangramsingh Nishandar, said that Azad Maidan has better toilet and water facilities. “There are no toilets and water facility here (Gateway of India),” he said.

The Gateway of India protests which were mobilized through social media were more like a picnic with people reaching the venue with vadapavs.

Elitist protestors demanding Taj Hotel which which right across the Gateway of India, to let the protestors use the toilet facilities.

As per Mumbai Police, these picnics masquerading as ‘protests’ were blocking the roads and common Mumbai residents and tourists were facing problems because of that.

According to police, they appealed to the protestors many times but now they were relocated to Azad Maidan. About 100 Mumbai residents had taken to Gateway of India on Monday to stand in solidarity with the violence unleashed by leftist goons on JNU campus who were opposing registration of students for the winter semester. The leftist goons had reportedly taken over the server room and also attacked those students who were registering for the next semester.

Some of the ‘protestors’ at Mumbai last evening were seen holding ‘Free Kashmir’ posters.

Reportedly, the students of the Mumbai University and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and others who had assembled on the pavement across the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel near the Gateway of India to apparently condemn the JNU violence were surprisingly heard chanting Azaadi songs and displaying posters, leaving people to wonder what ‘Free Kashmir’ posters and these Azaadi slogans have to do with protests against JNU violence.
