Srinagar: Students boarding in Kashmir University hostels have condemned the statement of ruling BJP legislator Ravinder Raina on Kashmir University vice chancellor Dr Khursheed Iqbal Andrabi. The legislator while justifying a probationary police officer’s action to halt and search the VC’s vehicle near Udhampur said that there was a chance of VC’s carrying a bomb in his vehicle. The video released by the police officer while peeling off film from the windscreen of the VC’s vehicle went viral leading to a controversy.
Such statement given by the legislator clarifies the dual vision of India towards Kashmir and shows the degradation of status. The vice chancellor does not hold one of the prestigious positions in the state education system but is also a scientist of international repute, unfortunately born in Kashmir,” the hostel boarders said.
