He said, “Against the tyranny of fear we stand with our students. For every voice raised in anger, intolerance &ignorance, there will be a Gurmehar Kaur.” Rahul Gandhi urged people to come in support of the college students after Kaur revealed that she has been getting threats and abuses on social media from cyber bullies. Kaur, a student of Lady Shri Ram college, is the daughter of late Captain Mandeep Singh, who was killed during the Kargil war.

Earlier in the day, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu came out in support of ABVP. He said, “ABVP is a nationalist organisation. While other organisations have different views and let them express it, why should outsiders go and disturb the peace of campuses.” Naidu added that while dissent is allowed, there should be no space for disintegration. “Having a different opinion apart from majority opinion is agreeable but not disintegration. Nobody can advocate disintegration,” Naidu said in press conference. “How can anybody advocate aazadi for J&K. You want to make universities as labs for separatist experiments?”
