Roll back anti-youth decision of CUJ: JKPYC

Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, May 29: Jammu Kashmir Pradesh Youth Congress (JKPYC) General Secretary, Nimrandeep Singh Bhullar conveyed his deep anguish over CUJ VC, who is hell bent upon to keep youth of UTJK unemployed.
“In order to bring down the youth of Jammu, VC of CUJ reduced salary along with degradation of profile from Assistant Professors to Guest Faculty which is against the UGC guidelines. The salary was reduced from the Assistant Professor from full scale (70000 approx) to Assistant Professor with consolidated salary (40000) and then further reduced to the profile of Resource person on a maximum salary of 30000. The university doesn’t even show any respect for court orders and shows vindictiveness against the employees who moved to law against them. The CUJ administration attempted to stop the course where faculty went to court by stopping Job-oriented Course of BVoc Tourism,” Nimrandeep maintained.
JKPYC warned VC, Central University of Jammu to stop regular discrimination with the youth of Jammu & Kashmir especially in this case with the youth of Jammu. Taking cognizance of the issue raised in the report covered by reputed Newspaper, the students of CUJ and youth of Jammu regarding the disparity being shown against them by the administration of the Central University of Jammu, Singh drew attention to discuss their stand on the issue.
Singh demanded enquiry against blue-eyed Nodal Officer, who has deliberately attempted to keep youth of Jammu aloof from the Job opportunities by stopping Bvoc Tourism Course.
Singh said the Central University of Jammu administration in a planned manner was depriving the youth of Jammu of the opportunities of vocational courses which has potential to create own ventures and generate employment in a UT where unemployment was a concern.
He said while other universities like BGSBU and CUK were promoting these job-oriented vocational courses to make their students job-ready and get more opportunities in the future, it becomes very interesting to know that why a course has specifically been removed from Jammu while it was being offered in far off places like Rajouri which receives a miniscule of the portion of tourists which Jammu receives annually.
He further said while UGC has given directions to carry on with the staff engaged and CUJ has issued new order during Covid-19 for ceasing the order of contractual employees, adding other Universities around them were thinking about welfare of their employees and keeping them motivated.
