The protest by NIT Srinagar students is evoking strong emotions across the country and people are particularly enthused by the support shown by student and civil society to the NIT students. On Sunday a group of youth affiliated to BJP and other groups started a march called ‘Chalo NIT’ srinagar. There was strong anger on the decision of police to register FIRs against NIT students. Political leaders, MPS, journalists and people from ordinary walks of life expressed great anger at failure of the nationalist forces to help students at NIT srinagar.
Here are some of the reactions.

FIR registered against #NITSrinagar students should be withdrawn. On behalf of the students I will take this matter to @BJPRajnathSingh ji.

Why impose Section 144 in an educational institution like #NITSrinagar merely because students unfurl tricolour?
