37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
Why IIT students are not allowed to discuss politics while they can vote in elections, asked retired judge of the Madras high court Justice K Chandru on Tuesday.
Speaking at an event held here in the backdrop of the derecognition of a student group at IIT Madras on charges of spreading ‘hatred’ against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Justice K Chandru said, “If students at IITs can vote in elections, then why are they not allowed to discuss politics? Modi is using social media to attract the support of youths. But why doesn’t he respect the freedom of expression of youths?”
