Er. Ehtisham Khan appeals Punjab CM to resolve issues faced by J&K students

Srinagar: Er. Ehtisham Khan, Co-Founder and Sr. Vice President of The Purpose (Regd. NGO) has taken a significant step in seeking justice for the deprived students entangled in an admission crisis at Desh Bhagat University in Punjab.
Khan has directed the concerns to Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, urging his immediate intervention in the ongoing issues faced by students, wherein the university authorities without obtaining any prior consent from them alleged transferred their admission from Desh Bhagat University to Sardar Lal Singh College.
He stated, “Over past few years these young and enthusiastic individuals were enrolled in specific courses but surprisingly the university deliberately decides to deceive them, placing their academic and professional futures at stake.For the past couple of years, these nursing students have been protesting against the University administration’s arbitrary decision to transfer their admission to a college that lacks certain primary accreditation from different entities like Indian Nursing Council and Punjab Nursing Registration Council. The move has negatively affected a considerable number of our students.Yesterday during a peaceful protest, these students including female students were subjected to lathi charge to silence their voices, how come this can be a solution.”
Additionally, as per a report, the university admitted 140 students far exceeding the approved intake capacity i.e. 60 maximum.
Consequently, these students are enduring immense stress and hardship, fearing that their career prospects are unjustly jeopardised due to the university’s actions, Khan said, adding that despite assurances from the university authorities, the situation has deteriorated over time.
Ehtisham Khan has appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, urging him to protect these students’ academic pursuits and allow them to continue their education without further hindrance. He also emphasised the need for an expeditious investigation into the issue. “I harbour a sincere hope that justice shall prevail soon,” he added.
