KU’s B.Tech students demand shifting of course from north campus to Zakura

BARAMULLA/SRINAGAR: Students of Kashmir University (KU) pursuing B.Tech at north campus on Tuesday held protests demanding shifting of the course to Zakoora campus.
Scores of students of B-Tech who are studying in north campus of Kashmir University gathered in press colony Srinagar and demanded their transfer to the newly established engineering college in Zakoora.
The students said that the KU authorities had promised them to shift to the college but have not yet done so. They said that there were no facilities which were mandatory for the engineering course in Delina campus.
A KU official said that the Varisty has formed a committee after the students demanded shifting of the course. “The committee is yet to submit its report,” he said.
Director north campus, Irshad Ahmad acknowledged that there was no proper engineering environment at Delina campus. “I took the matter with the higher officials to provide all the facilities,” he said.
However, the traders’ federation of Baramulla has resented shifting of the course to Zakoora. President of the federation, Qazi Ishfaq Ahmad and general secretary Er Tariq Ahmad Magloo, addressing a press conference, said that they will come out on roads if the course was shifted from north campus.
