Srinagar, Aug 19: It was for first time that Kashmiri students discussed “Azadi” in New Delhi.
Wearing black bands against the recent killings across the Valley students from Islamic University of Science and Technology met the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and leader of the opposition and senior BJP leader Sushma Sawraj on Wednesday. “Many of our questions remained unanswered,” students told Greater Kashmir.
“We told Home Minister till India doesn’t except Kashmir as a dispute all processes are bound to fail,” they added.
Students said they refused to have a photo session with Home Minister as a mark of protest.
"I know I have not convinced you.” students quoted Chidambaram as having told them.
When students insisted that Kashmiris want Azadi and cessation from India, the BJP leader Sushma Swaraj replied that Kashmir is an integral part of India and such demands are irrational.
The young MP and daughter of Sunil Dutt, Priya Dutt told visiting students: “We want to know what you want.”
Besides Home Minister and leader of the opposition, students met the BJP President Nitin Gadkari, "Young" Parliamentarians like Harsimran Kaur, Priya Dutt, Narendra Jain, Anurag Singh Thakur, Neeraj Shekhar, and Pioneer Editor Chandadan Mitra, TOI Internet edition editor Rajesh Kalra, Tehelka Writer Shoma Choudhary and others.
