Srinagar, August 8: A group of students affiliated with banned Kashmir University Students Union (KUSU) on Tuesday staged a pro-freedom protest on Governor NN Vohra’s visit to the varsity’s Hazratbal campus.
A KUSU statement said that on Governor’s visit, who is also Chancellor of the KU, they held a protest on the campus. “We were few in number. Even we weren’t discouraged by that. For we know, successful revolutions have a minority of dedicated people behind them,” said the KUSU.
It claimed that several departments were sent to picnic considering the arrival of Governor. “On the eve of Asiya-Neelofer event in 2015, a similar trend was applied. Nonetheless, a small group of students held placards denouncing the State and shouting anti-India slogans,” the KUSU statement said.
