Pampore: The Government Degree College Pampore was shifted to new premises two years ago, but the road that connects college to the main road is yet to be macadamized.
The 750-metre muddy stretch has become a nuisance for students and the staff, especially during rainy days. Students say that very few attend the college in rains because of the muddy road.
The faculty members lamented that the issue could be sorted out or at least followed upon by the college principal, but the college is without one since June.
“A head always leads from the front. Since the college is without head, so we are suffering,” a senior faculty member said wishing anonymity.
He added that the problem of road was lingering as the farmers of the area were insisting that the road must be taken further to the fields.
There are around 550 students enrolled in the college and has about 30 staff members.
Acknowledging the problem, Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, Munir-ul-Islam told Kashmir Reader that he would direct the Roads and Buildings department to take up the work early.
He added that the macadamisation had been delayed because of “some hurdles”.
