PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jammu, July 20: National Panthers Students' Union (NPSU) today held a demonstration demanding that Central University of Jammu (CUJ) be made functional immediately.
Led by State Vice-President, Young Panthers and in-charge NPSU Pushvinder Singh Manhas, over 300 student activists blocked canal road in front of the GGM Science college and staged demonstrations against the state and central government for their failure in making the CUJ operational and functional by appointing the vice-chancellor.
The students also resorted to minor stone pelting on the passing vehicles and damaged two vehicles.
Later, when police tried to disperse the students, an altercation broke out between them, which led the former to resort to cane-charging.
Manhas told reporters here that the state government was allegedly using dilly dallying process in appointing vice-chancellor of CUJ.
He also lambasted the MPs, ministers, MLAs, MLCs and other leaders from the region, who have ‘kept mum’ till date and not uttering even a single word in the support of agitation launched for CUJ by the students.
Manhas appealed to the student community in particular and public in general of the region to get united in the final struggle for reorganization of the state “which is the ultimate and final solution of the dispute of J&K.”
He added that NPSU would leave no stone unturned until and unless the goal is achieved.
