Congress to take up NIT issue with government to resolve matter: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday met with some students of NIT Srinagar and assured them that the party will raise their concerns over campus safety with the government.

"Met students and parents from National Institute of Technology (NIT), Srinagar who expressed concern over the safety and security of students on (the) campus. I assured them that the Congress would raise their concerns and put pressure on the government to resolve the matter," Rahul tweeted after the meeting.

The NIT campus had been on boil following clashes between Kashmiri and non-Kashmiri students, after the locals celebrated West Indies' win over the Indian cricket team, in the world T-20 semi final match on 31 March.

The classes had to be suspended after the clashes and subsequent protests. A large section of non-Kashmiri students also refused to appear for their exams and sought migration from the institute.
