The Vice-Chancellor Prof R D Sharma also held an interaction meeting with the class four employees today and assured to consider all their genuine demands.
While pointing towards a few recent incidents on the campus, the Vice-Chancellor said that some elements were  hell bent to create an atmosphere of uncertainty in the Jammu University and it was responsibility of  every right thinking person  to ensure that such miscreant are not allowed to  exploit the situation. The Union has a role to play and they are morally bound to raise genuine issues related to employees but that doesn’t mean employees have to sit on strike, which is the last resort, he added.
