KISHTWAR, Dec 14: Ever increasing number of private colleges in the capital cities threaten the existence of the offshoot Campuses as nexus between the Jammu University officials and the Private College is deeply rooted in the system eating these vital educational hubs by reducing them to mere photo opportunities.
As per the details available with Early Times the Jammu University authorities had blocked the annual funds and grants to various Jammu University campuses including Kishtwar University Campus since last over three years as a result of which majority of them are at the verge of collapse.
The sources said that the financial position of all the University campuses is being weakened though a well planned conspiracy involving the nexus of Jammu University officials and Private colleges as due to opening of new University Campuses in Doda, Kishtwar, Reasi, Udhampur, Samba, Kathua, Rajouri and Poonch Districts of Jammu Division, the student strength in Jammu's private colleges had come down drastically as a result of which these private colleges suffered massive losses.
The sources said the private college owners allegedly gives huge commissions to the University officials through agents for securing maximum seats for running their private colleges added that the B Ed college owners pays the highest commission among the all colleges. The sources said that these private colleges established huge infrastructure including hostels where hundreds of students could be adjusted added that due to opening of University Campuses like Kathua and Bhaderwah Campuses and Kishtwar B Ed college the private colleges owners suffered massive losses in terms of profits.
The sources said that in a well planned conspiracy hatched at top level, the private colleges and University official nexus started weakening these university campus and find Kishtwar University Campus and other campuses as a result of which all the campuses other than Kathua and Bhaderwah Campuses are facing closure problem added that Bhaderwah University and Kathua University campuses had been established after following proper procedure wherein all the posts were created through proper channel while all other Campuses are non plan Campuses subjected to availability of funds.
The sources said that funds of the tune of corers of rupees were released as well as spend on building infrastructure for these University campuses in previous government while at the same time the government fails to bring all these university Campuses in proper annual plan budgets.
The sources said that University Official and Private College nexus in order to sabotage the functioning of these University Campuses sanctioned lesser known courses which had no takers for these campuses.
"It is strange that instead of sanctioning of those courses taught in Kishtwar schools and colleges--Jammu University accorded sanction to those courses which lacks students' interest" said social activist Shakir Saddiqui. He said that on one hand side State and central government claims that they wants to bring revolutionary changes in education section by opening IIT, IIM, AIIMS, Medical Colleges, cluster universities while at the same time fails to strengthen the already existing institutions like Kishtwar University campus and urged upon the government to look into the issue before it snowballs into major controversy.
