State BJP chief Satpal Satti and other party leaders dubbed the visit of the two Congress leaders as unfortunate and shameful.

Demanding arrest of all those involved in the alleged raising of the slogans, they said it was a matter of grave concern that some students enjoying all facilities and privileges of the country are raising anti-national slogans and speaking language of scenarists.

Meanwhile, local Congress leaders condemned the alleged attack on Sharma by right-wing activists at the university campus and termed it as pre-planned.

Deepak Sundriyal, spokesperson of the Shimla (Urban) Congress Committee, condemned the attack on Sharma and said it was an expression of growing frustration among the BJP cadres and RSS affiliated organisations.
