Srinagar: Slamming Kashmir University over mismanagement of examination and fee hike, the National Conference Saturday said the varsity has maintained silence on these issues and the student fraternity is bearing the brunt of their negligence.
“The functioning of Kashmir university administration in catering to the needs of students is ‘dismal’,” the spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said in a statement. “Recently hundreds of college students had to face bizarre situation across Kashmir when they turned up to write examination papers for Geography but the question paper supplied by the varsity was on Geology.”
He said that such bizarre incidents have become order of the day. “A large number of Persian literature students had to return without writing their paper when authorities at the University of Kashmir had totally forgotten to print the question papers after announcing dates for the college examination,” he said.
Imran said that the drastic increase in fee structure of PhD scholars and students is also pushing the students to wall. “The authorities should review the fee structure of students. The stipend for the scholars should be increased and it should be disbursed speedily,” he added.
Imran urged the Governor’s administration to take immediate measures to bring respite to the students and scholars and hold the erring responsible. “The educational institutions are behaving recklessly and the need of the hour is to maintain accountability at all levels,” he said.
