“We are demanding azaadi for Kashmir and Manipur. Azaadi for us means withdrawal of army and AFSPA. The people are oppressed by the army and it has resulted in so many deaths. It’s high time that these two states should be freed from armed forces and AFSPA,” said Mrinmoy Sarkar from the Progressive Democratic Students’ Federation (PDSF) organisation.

A large number of the participants were from various colleges and universities of the state, while many academics, rights activists or even supporters of specific political parties, including the ruling party, could also be seen.



“Why young boys– like Burhan Wani– is taking up arms is a not question that nobody is asking. Rather the State is seeking a solution by killing more and more civilians. It is shameful, barbaric and would never produce a solution,” former Head of the Department, Bangla, Presidency University, Sabyasachi Deb said.

He said that the officials of the state should “immediately stop killing the people” and seek a dialogue-driven solution to the problem.
