JAMMU, Nov 26: Students of Nursing Colleges of Gandhi Nagar and Gangyal in Jammu today held a protest against merger of the two colleges.
The protest was held under the aegis of International Human Rights Organization (IHRO). The protest was led by Akhash Bhagat (Provincial Youth president of IHRO) under the supervision of Advocate Pardeepak Singh Chib (Chairman of the Organization).
Speaking on the occasion, Akhash Bhagat said that the strength of these two colleges is so high and it is very difficult for the students to adjust there as there is no proper infrastructure, no hostel facilities and very low space for classrooms. He said in the absence of proper road connectivity, students have to walk a lot through narrow streets to reach the College campus.
Bhagat said according to the budget, an amount of 8 crore was spent on the college campus, but when the students went to the college campus, they found that the classrooms were in a dilapidated condition, labs were broken and many things had been stolen.
Speaking on the occasion, Shubam Langer (State Youth president, IHRO) said it was also found that there is no adequate security arrangement in the college campus and no CCTV cameras which is the reason that a lot of college stuff has been stolen. Langer demanded inquiry of stolen stuff of the College and punishment for culprits.
He demanded deployment of security guards so that the students can feel safe. “Merging of both the colleges is not a good initiative, it will affect the studies of students as there is no proper infrastructure for them and also it will create a pressure on administration,’ Langer added.
