Demanding judicial enquiry into the issue of National Institute of Technology (NIT), All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Ambika Soni Monday termed the use of forces in educational institutes as ‘unethical’.
While talking to media on the sidelines of executive meet held at party’s headquarter in Srinagar, Ambika Soni said that they as a party are seeking judicial enquiry to ascertain the facts that what happened in the campus and whatsoever is going on in the campus should be made public. “Some political parties are playing politics over students and by conducting judicial probe in this regard, truth will come out and who is behind the issue will be also come to fore,” she said.

Soni said that why the outsiders are trying to visit NIT campus in Srinagar. “What is the need for outsiders to attempt to interfere in the issues of students.
