KU North Campus students hail VC’s move, demand 5 classes

Srinagar: The latest move of Kashmir University to temporarily shift the students from North Campus Baramulla to the main campus Hazratbal has given respite to the students whose career was at stake at ‘ignored’ North campus Baramulla.

The students have however demanded that they there should be atleast five working days for classes in a week instead of three. Following a series of reports published in local media about the lack of facilities, infrastructure and the dearth of staff, an inspection team deputed by the Vice Chancellor (VC) to the N. campus had recently recommended temporary shifting of students to the main campus.

“At least we can at least take three classes properly here at the main campus. At north campus, our future was simply at stake due to multiple problems. However the temporary shifting apparently seems to be a make shift arrangement and we do not know for how long we will be kept here. Lot of our precious academic time has already got wasted due to the multiple problems especially the dearth of staff,” said a student adding that they were at least satisfied with the VC’ move.

However, the move has generated apprehensions among the prospective students from North Kashmir towns intending to get admissions in B-Tech and few other courses taught at the North campus.

“What if the campus was shifted permanently to the main campus at Hazratbal, it would be cumbersome for future students to take admission at main campus, as Baramulla is nearer,” said Faisal Ahmad who has passed his 12th class recently and intends to join B-Tech course.

Likewise, parents have also expressed their concerns over the temporary closure of North campus. “Had the students at campus been provided with all basic facilities, the shifting would not have taken place. Why the authorities started the courses some years before, when they were not sure about the necessary infrastructure and other basic facilities,” asked Mohammad Yousuf of Nowshera adding that in the interest of students at large, university should resume classes at North campus with all facilities in place.

Former director North campus, Farooq Ahmad told Agence India Press, “It is better to talk to the Vice chancellor. I am not an authority to comment,” he quipped. (AIP)
