The ABVP leader held Jammu University Vice-Chancellor Prof R D Sharma responsible for the ongoing agitation by the students, who are demanding basic facilities in the hostels and the campus. “The Vice Chancellor is pursing a  policy of divide and rule against which all the students need to join hands and raise voice,” he said and added that the VC  also failed to develop offsite campuses for which Central Government had issued funds of Rs  117 crores.
He further alleged that the JU  after the implementation of CBCS has failed to ensure proper checks and balances due to lack of academic concern by the VC.
The ABVP leader also alleged malpractices in the Central University for which enquiries from  the higher Government offices have  been initiated at different levels. “The Central University VC has failed to provide basic facilities to the students, as the university has constructed the academic blocks first and classrooms are kept under second priority by the VC. Hostels are being hired by the university from the renowned political bosses and business houses for which huge amount of rent is being paid out of university fund,” he said.
Rimsha Ali Khan, State joint secretary,  strongly opposed the Government policy of imposing Urdu as mandatory for Naib Tehsildar and Patwari examinations, which would directly hit the candidates from  Jammu and Ladakh regions where this language is not taught from primary level.
