Beijing loyalist and DAB former chairman, Tam Yiu-chung, says the pro-independence banners that recently appeared on university campuses were the work of a small group of attention-seeking students, and that most people here don't support Hong Kong independence.

Tam, who's also a member of the central government's top advisory body, the CPPCC, said the students were just looking for an excuse to oppose the central government. He said he hoped they would stop wasting their energy.

Tam was speaking during a radio programme.
