JAMMU, Oct 21: All J&K Youth Federation (AJKYF) activists here today joined the protest demonstration of engineering students against University of Jammu (JU) for not conducting backlog examination for final year and other students even after guidelines have been issued by UGC for conducting all type of examinations by the end of September 2020.
Sanjay Singh Sandhu, Federation Incharge Jammu Province and Vivasvan Sawhney, chief of Sports Cell among volunteers of Youth Federation joined the protest at JU from where a protest rally was taken out from JU main gate to the administrative block amidst raising of slogans against the varsity administration for not conducting the examination.
Speaking on the occasion Sandhu said JU claims that various notifications have been issued by it and its associated colleges recommending conduction of online/offline examination for the students having backlog examination but on ground not a single notification has been issued due to which the students have been left with no other option but to come on road protesting against the administration for failure.
Vivasvan Sawhney said that the students have approached the University and the Colleges but only false assurances were made to them for conducting of the examinations.
“Earlier examinations used to be held by the end of April-May but due to COVID-19 pandemic this year educational institutions were closed and now even after the guidelines of UGC and Supreme Court for conducting examination JU is doing nothing for the students having backlog exams to clear in the final year and passed out students of final year,” he maintained.
