NIT-Srinagar students want Smriti or Modi to hoist Tricolour

New Delhi:The outstation students of the National Institute of Technology (NIT)-Srinagar on Tuesday that either Prime Minister Narendra Modi or the Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Minister Smriti Irani visit the institute and hoist national flag on the campus to “instil a sense of security”.

“This will end the leave taken by the students and also give them a sense of security.

This will reiterate the message that Kashmir is an integral part of India and students will have a psychological win over the anti-national elements in the campus as well as outside,” they said at the second round of meeting with the Ministry officials.

The delegation of the NIT-Srinagar students was accompanied by Akhil Bharaitya Vidyarthi Parishad activists.

In a 19-point memorandum of demands submitted to the ministry, the students also demanded “permanent” deployment of the CRPF on the campus and “immediate” reshuffling of the institute’s administration.

The students, however, dropped their demand of shifting of students from the campus, accepting that such a move will send out a wrong message to the world as Kashmir was an integral part of India.
