Students of Kashmir University (KU) on Tuesday held a protest march inside the campus against the National Students Union of India (NSUI) recruitment drive despite ban students’ politics.
According to students staying at KU hostel, the NSUI supporters distributed recruitment form late on Monday evening but attracted protests from the students.
Early on Tuesday morning the students marched on campus. A senior university official played down the incident saying “there was some misunderstanding”.
"It was not a big protest. It was nothing," University Proctor Naseer Iqbal told the media.
However, students told the HT that classes were boycotted in the afternoon. “We demanding the ban on the students' political activities be lifted completely or not be partial to a particular group,” said a protesting student.
In 2009, KU authorities banned college politics when the office building of the Kashmir University Students Union (KUSU) closed for activities.
