KISHTWAR: The students of Government Degree College, Kishtwar on Wednesday staged a protest against the college administration for allegedly not paying heed to their plea regarding hoisting the National Flag in the college.
The protesting students later hoisted the national flag at the college gate after being denied permission to do so by the college Principal.
“Day before yesterday, students come to us demanding that national flag should be hoisted somewhere in the college building. They also wrote to us. I assured them that a decision would be taken after consulting staff and following rules, but they insisted that we must take a decision within one or two days,” said Pawan Kumar Varma, Principal.
“Today they protested and hoisted the national flag at the college gate. We have demanded adequate police security at college gate,” said principal.
