KU seeks explanation from Bibi Haleema College principal over shortage of teachers

SRINAGAR: Kashmir University authorities on Wednesday sought a report from the principal of Bibi Haleema College of Nursing, a Wakaf-run institution, over allegations of shortage of teachers in the college.
Students of BSc nursing had complained on Tuesday that their class work has been curtailed drastically since May this year because of unavailability of teachers.
After the complaints, Kashmir University authorities on Wednesday swung into action and visited the college. Dean College Development Council, G Mustafa Shah told Kashmir Reader that he inspected the college and asked its principal to send a report by Thursday. The students had said that teachers were not available in five out of nine subjects of the course. The Vice-chairman J&K Wakaf Board, Mir Mohammad Hussain did not respond to repeated calls from Kashmir Reader.
On Tuesday he had told this newspaper that he was unaware of it and would look into the issue.
Meanwhile the students of the college continued their protests on the third day. They said that their plan of protesting outside the college was spoiled by the authorities.
