KU speaks democracy
Srinagar, June 27: Noted scholar of English, Prof Badri Raina, Monday delivered a lecture on “Indian democracy: past, present and future” at the Kashmir University.
Raina spoke at length on how India emerged as a democracy over the years.
He said the “lesser known groups” of people have emerged in the democratic set-up over a period of time. “In spite of conflicts in the democracy, there is a choice also,” Raina said.
