New Delhi: Issues related to NIT in Srinagar, which had witnessed trouble a few months back, have been resolved and the institute is functioning even during the curfew, the government told the Rajya Sabha on Monday.
"One good news, ... NIT Srinagar was in the news for many reasons but let me tell you .. All the issues are resolved satisfactorily. The students are on the campus and even during the curfew period the institute was functioning. So that's a good news," HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said.
"That's how we should all come together and go ahead because this is the area where it is a national agenda. I believe education is not a political agenda, it is national agenda," he added.
He was replying to a discussion on a bill that provides for establishing a NIT in Andhra Pradesh.
NIT in Srinagar had witnessed trouble, triggered by a clash between local and outstation students over a T-20 World Cup match on March 31.
