Srinagar: Chief minister Mehbooba Mufti was booed off by the candidates, and their parents, who had come from various parts of the valley to write the Common Entrance Test at Women’s College MA Road on Sunday.
When Mehbooba visited the examination centres at the college, the candidates and their parents shouted pro-freedom and anti-India slogans.
The CM was accompanied by divisional commisioner Kashmir and other officials.
“I came here to accompany my ward for appearing in CET exam. But the government wants to convert it into a PR exercise,” said a parent, who had travelled in a government vehicle from north Kashmir to the venue.
On Saturday, Mehbooba’s trusted liuetnant and education minister Naeem Akhtar’s cavalcade was stoned in his home district, Bandipora. Police reinforcements had to be sent from Srinagar to rescue him.
