Parliament panel meet on HRD slated to be held in Srinagar postponed

New Delhi: A meeting of the Parliamentary Consultative Committee of HRD, scheduled to be held in Srinagar on Wednesday and to be attended by HRD Minister Smriti Irani and several MPs, has been postponed.

“The meeting which the HRD minister was supposed to attend has been deferred,” a source told PTI. HRD Ministry officials, when contacted, did not give any reasons for the postponement.

The decision came in the backdrop of tension which has gripped NIT Srinagar campus ever since clashes between outstation and local students following India’s defeat to West Indies in the World T20 Cup on March 31.
