State Times News JAMMU: Students of Government Degree College, Kishtwar on Wednesday hoisted National flag on top of the entrance gate of the college premises after they were denied permission by the college Principal to do the same inside the college campus. According to students of the Government Degree College, on April 22, a written permission was sought from the college Principal to hoist National flag in the college campus. They claimed instead of granting permission the college authorities, tried to persuade them and convinced them that the move may spark communal tension in the area. The students charged when Pakistani flags are hoisted atop different buildings in Kashmir no action is taken against those but here we are seeking a proper permission and we have been denied the same to hoist National flag in the college campus. As college students persisted the college authorities sought some time to discuss the matter with the senior faculty and district authorities in the area. Meanwhile, on Wednesday large number of students, holding national flags in their hands assembled in the college premises and demanded permission from the authorities to allow them to hoist the Tricolour.
As the deadlock continued, large number of slogan shouting students climbed front gate of the college and hoisted Tricolour there. Meanwhile, clarifying his position, Principal of the Degree College, Pawan Kumar Sharma, claimed he had not denied permission to college students to hoist the Tricolour.
He said, since there is a proper protocol behind hoisting a National Flag as per its code I had only sought more time from the students to discuss the same to avoid any disrespect to the National Flag. He said, they assembled in the college campus and hoisted the flag on the front gate of the college.
