BJP targeted the Congress over the incident, alleging the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act were a "joint venture between Pakistan & Anti-National Forces led by @INCIndia."

The Congress too condemned the woman''s conduct and demanded stern action. The woman, identified as Amulya Leona, asked people to shout with her "Pakistan Zindabad" thrice after the organisers of the event under the banner of "Save Constitution" invited her to address the gathering soon after Owaisi came on the stage.

Later, the police stepped in and removed her from the dais. The woman had been taken into custody, police said adding she might be charged with sedition.
