Condolence meetStudents’ Council organized the Condolence Meet on the 15th of February, to pay respects to the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the Pulwama attack. A candlelight rally was organized with the support of the Director and the Registrar. The crowd started from the Admin Building and walked towards the Main Gate via the Auditorium route.
Responding to a query on the same, Meer Afroz, Academic Secretary, told us, "Being the son of a soldier, I can understand how painful the situation is for their families. I was surprised to see the number of students who had attended the candlelight rally, because being a Friday when many students prefer to go home, around 900 students have participated in the candle march. This shows that the students of our college have huge respect for the nation and love towards those who defend it. I feel that being engineers we should be able to do something which benefits the soldiers. It's the least we can do for those who sacrifice their lives so that we can have a sound sleep without worries."
