JAMMU, Feb 27: Aggrieved B Ed students Gandhi Memorial College, Raipur Domana today held a protest demonstration against the college administration for not conducting their examinations for the last four years.
The protesting students were joined by NSF activists and they raised slogans against the college administration as well as the Kashmir University, to which it has been affiliated. The protest demonstration was held near the Press Club Jammu.
While addressing the gathering, NSF leader Manmohan Singh explained that these students were undergoing B Ed course in Gandhi Memorial College, Raipur Bantalab Jammu, which has failed to conduct examinations of enrolled students for the year 2015-17 for no reasons.
Since the college is affiliated with University of Kashmir and is bound to function as per its norms and guidelines, KU is also not taking cognizance of the grievance of these students, he added.
Manmohan Singh said that the college administration has not been able to conduct examinations of all the four semesters of students, who got admission in the year 2015, thus putting the academic career of these students in jeopardy.
Lashing out at working of the college, NSF leader said that admission for further sessions was still going on unabated and huge fees was being taken from students even as there is no guarantee of holding timely examinations which speaks enough about the teaching standard of such a college affiliated with the University of Kashmir.
NSF leader Ishtiaq Naik also addressed the students and lambasted the KU authorities for giving long rope to such irresponsible colleges ostensibly on ulterior motives, He appealed the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Governor N N Vohra to intervene into the matter and rescue the career of these students whose academic future was being subjected to jeopardy besides draining them financially.
He sought thorough probe into this college by the concerned authorities so that the interests of students are protected and their academic future is saved.
Others, who addressed the protesters, included Neeru Devi, Sakshi Sharma, Kalpna Magotra, Kuldeep Rana, Niharika, Suresh Kumar, Rohit Kotwal, Manjesh Kumar, Yasmeen Khan, Pardeep Kumar and Paramjeet Singh.
