New Delhi, May 6: Home Minister P Chidambaram was welcomed with blacks flags and slogans by a group of pro-Naxal students at the Jawaharlal Nehru University.
The activists belonging to All India Students Association (AISA) and Democratic Students Union (DSU) raised slogans against Chidamabaram, who reached the university campus to address a seminar on "Naxalism: Threat to Indian Democracy and Internal Security" organised by pro-Congress National Students Union Of India (NSUI).
Nearly 150 students gathered outside the School of Social Sciences auditorium, the venue of the seminar, with carried placards which read "Chidambaram, Go Back", "Stop Operation Green Hunt" and "Hang Afzal Guru" and shouted slogans.
"The corporates and Hindu fundamentalists are the biggest threat to democracy, not Naxalism" said one of the pamphlets issued by DSU.
The pro-CPI(M) Students Federation of India (SFI), though were against the killing of innocent people by Naxals, questioned Chidambaram's approached in handling the Maosists issue.
"We are not convinced that your security-centric approach and muscle-flexing vis-a-vis the Maoists is an effective way of dealing with the problem", said SFI in an "open letter" to Chidambaram.
