Scores of ex-servicemen and people from various walks of life on Sunday participated in a unity march against the alleged anti-national sloganeering on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus over the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
The protest was organised under the banner "March For Unity To Save The Country". "People from all walks of life have come here to join this protest against the anti-national sloganeering on the JNU campus. The protest has been organised by an apolitical group 'People for Nation' to support nation's spirit," said one of the protestors. "They should support India because this is the country which feeds us," he added.
Another protester said any sloganeering against the nation is condemnable. "And that is why the people of Delhi have come out on the streets in large numbers," he added. Major General (Retd.) Dhruv C. Katoch had yesterday said the rally has been organised by an apolitical group 'People for Nation'. The march, which began at the Raj Ghat at 10.30 a.m., will culminate with a public meeting at the Parliament Street here.
