RAJOURI: Under Swachh Bharat programme by GOI of India, MHRD directed all Universities of India to initiate a summer internship of 100 hrs for volunteer students from their respective Universities. In this regard a letter was received by Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University, Rajouri also.
Prof. Javed Musarrat, Vice Chancellor, BGSBU right after his taking over the Versity has always taken personal interest in the cleanness of the campus and its surroundings. He has always said that ‘Cleanness is next to Godliness” and has always made best efforts to keep the campus and adjoining areas clean and green. On receiving the intimation from MHRD, Prof. Musarrat immediately nominated a nodal officer Dr. Parvez Abdulla for the project and teams of volunteers were made. A team of Prof. Iqbal Parwez, Registrar and Dean Academic Affairs was nominated as chairman of the University award committee and Prof. G.M Malik, Dean of Students as convener for Swachh Bharat Summer Internship-2018 (SBSI-2018). The other members in the committee were Prof. Naseem Ahmed, Dean School of Management Studies, Prof. Shauja Uddin, Director Bio-Diversity Studies and Prof. Mohammed Asger, Dean School of Engineering and Technology.
These teams under his supervision of the SBSI-2018 Nodal officer worked for 100 hr and more at their respective native places to make people aware about the importance of cleanness and ways and means to achieve it. This summer internship was done in summer vacations. Today at an event organized at the campus all the work done by the teams was presented before the award committee, Faculty members and rest of the students.
Speaking on the occasion Prof. Iqbal Parwez, Registrar/ Dean Academic Affairs and Chairman of the award committee said that cleanliness should not be restricted to any programme but should be inbuilt. All religions teach us to be clean and keep our surroundings clean too. He said he wanted to make BGSBU an example and showcase it to the world what real cleanliness means. Prof. Iqbal showed his confidence on the Nodal officer to whom the assignment has been given. He further added that next time he would appreciate more participation.
A certificate of participation was awarded to each participant by the committee after the presentations, how the judgment on best internship work shall be declared later.
