Jammu, May 15: In a weird move, Principal, Government Maulana Azad Memorial (MAM) College, Dr. Anita Sudan has shifted the college's parking to the sports ground leaving the sports activities affected.
According to a sportsman of the college who wished not to be named, after the approval of underground Parking Project for the college over which the office of the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) was to be constructed, the lone parking slot of the college was shifted to the Sports Ground without taking the sportsmen into the confidence.
"Later on, due to some administrative reasons, the designs of the RUSA building were not approved and the construction work was stopped. College authorities thereupon didn't bother to lift the construction material like scattered iron bars, pebbles owing to which the sports community of the college is largely irked", said the player.
"Randomly parked four wheelers, two wheelers are giving weird look to one of the finest college of the Jammu", added the player.
He added that one year ago, construction work of the swimming pool was taken up by the Jammu and Kashmir Project Construction Company Limited (JKPCC), work on which is still pending, the excavated soil is till date lying unmoved near excavation site.
