Most demands of the agitating students at NIT Srinagar have been accepted by the HRD Ministry. The Ministry has even allowed them to go home and appear for their exams later. To ensure their safety and security, CRPF has been deployed. The government has also agreed to have their answer scripts evaluated externally and has promised them of action against those staff found guilty of discrimination. The manner in which the students were lathicharged by the overzealous cops is wrong and inhuman. Investigations are on and those found guilty will be punished. However despite all assurances if the students continue with their protests, this would certainly be a cause for worry. I have been informed that some students want a transfer out of Srinagar to some other campus for which applications were submitted a year ago. The worst part is that this section of students are not only misusing the tricolour and ‘bharat mata ki jai’ slogans but also using other students in the campus for their own demands. This definitely is not legitimate.
