15 IIT-K students have been arrested from IIT Kanpur gate yesterday, while they were trying to go out and hold a Human Chain to make public awareness to boycott proposed rally of Sonia Gandhi on 8th August in Kanpur.

It is learnt that Congress Members of the city tried to cajole IIT students against holding their Human Chain and when unsuccessful got them arrested by pressurizing the city police.

All students were member of Youth for Equality Kanpur chapter. The students were first detained at the gate for around 1.5 hours and finally arrested and later released.

Time for government to rethink about the Reservation policy as whole and possibly economic reservation is the best solution. As majority of students from premier institutes like IIT/IIM/AIIMS and even people in general stand in unison against the Congress government policy on reservation, which is nothing but another gimmick for the sake of Vote Bank and on the same lines of their minority appeasement policy and display of Pseudo Secularism.
