In India-occupied Kashmir, the Kashmir University Students Union (KUSU) has said that India is using the University for political purposes.
The students union in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the foray of students groups in the varsity backed by pro-occupation political groups was aimed at further choking the voice of resistance against Indian occupation in the university.
The statement said the National Students Union of India (NSUI), after getting a cold response in the KU last time had again started its activities with active support of the administration. However, this time around NSUI has expanded its activities to colleges, north and south campuses of the KU and other universities of the territory, it added.
The statement said that the student representatives from Islamic University, Awantipora, met with the KUSU and expressed concern over the activities of pro-India student unions. The student representatives resolved to chalk out a joint strategy against advances of India-backed student groups, it maintained.
It said that the NSUI activities in KU were supported by administration with Vice-Chancellor, Talat Ahmad, leading the pack in a disgraceful show of hypocrisy and puppetry despite it that the university administration had apparently banned all political activities on campus.
