Jammu: Amidst a tight security cover, Priyanka Gandhi Wadhera today met some militancy affected children and had an interaction with them at Jammu University. She distributed books among the children and remained with them for about two hours. She also met Vice-Chancellor, Prof Amitabh Mattoo who called on her at the interaction venue. The interaction programme was organised by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). An unprecedented security blanket was thrown over the campus, particularly around Gymnasium hall where the function was organised. Except organisors, no one was allowed entry at the venue which had been virtually seized by the NSG commandos.
