Srinagar: Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI) on Thursday appealed the students of NIT, Srinagar to continue focus on their education and not fall prey to “intrigue and machination of the enemies of peace and vested political interests” who are trying to derive political mileage out of the issue.
In a statement issued here, KCCI spokesman said the Indian media is presenting a “simple law and order problem” at NIT, Srinagar as a local versus non-local issue which is not right. “It is unfair to paint black the people of Kashmir and project them in an ugly negative light. More so, the ratio of students at NIT Srinagar between locals and outsiders is 30:70, who have been all along living in most cordial atmosphere in the campus,” said the statement.
The statement added: “In the given scenario, the KCCI would appeal the students of the NIT to continue with their education without falling prey to any intrigue and machination of the enemies of peace and vested political interests, as it is in no one’s interest to politicize the issue which could be resolved by the management and the students community mutually.”
