Streamline dental college affairs: SDSJK to govt

Srinagar: Society of Dental Surgeons J&K (SDSJK) Sunday sought intervention of Health Minister and Commissioner Secretary Health to intervene in ending the exploitation and harassment of students of Government dental college.
The association spokesman said that an executive meeting of Society of Dental Surgeons J&K (SDSJK) under the chairmanship of Dr Imtiyaz Maqbool Banday took serious cognisance of a news report published in a daily newspaper pertained to Government Dental College (GDC).
The association is aghast over the unprofessional behaviour by the office bearers at the helm of affairs which has led shameful incidents to become a norm, spokesman said.
“A student needs a comfortable academic atmosphere to study and if the basic requirements are not met, it becomes difficult to excel for them in their profession. If the students are devoid of basic amenities then officials have no claim to justify of doing their duties sincerely (sic).” he said.
SDSJK expressed sympathy with the students of the college and said that they will raise their genuine demands with Minister for Health & Medical Education, Bali Bhagat & MoS for Health & Medical Education ,Ms Asiea Naqash and Principal Secretary Health & Medical Education Dr Pawan Kotwal.
SDSJK in solidarity with Dental Students Association of Government Dental College Srinagar stressesed the Principal Govt. Dental College Srinagar to resolve the grave issues at the earliest and intervene in abolishing undue exploitation and harassment of the students.
