Early Times Report
Srinagar, Nov 18: Even as the Cluster University of Srinagar here continues to be in news for allegedly wrong reasons, in the latest the CUS students have accused the varsity of reducing semester to three months thereby putting them to inconvenience.
Official sources said while the CUS had started classes for its second semester of the 5-year integrated courses only in the month of November, the students have been asked to fill up their examination forms in the coming days while the exams are expected to be held in the month of January.
This has left the students shocked. "How can we complete the course in less than three months when the semester is supposed to be of six months," asked a delegation of students on the condition of anonymity.
The students said they had told the concerned authorities to look into the matter but that they have been asked to "keep quite or face consequences."
"We have been asked to not to share this complaint with anyone lest, we will be taught a lesson in the exams," the students flanked by their parents said.
The students said the classes were not held properly even for the first semester of their course at the campuses at SP College and the Amar Singh College. The students said after the conduction of the exams for the first semester, the concerned college principals asked them to sit back at home and "relax for one month."
"Our exams were held in September. For the month of October no classes were held for the second semester as the concerned teachers kept dilly-dallying the commencement of the classes, that finally started in November," said students.
The students accused the college principals of being "extremely non- cooperative." "Whenever we try bring our genuine problems into the notice of the concerned, we're rebuked by the principal," the students said.
Sources said the college staff and principals have allegedly taken things for granted. "Basically the things are being taken lightly as most of those at the helm were influential faces enjoying patronage of the then PDP led government," said a senior official in the Higher Education Department.
He said in the interest of the education, the Raj Bhawan should hold inquiry into the "maladministration of the CUS." "Things are in a mess and unless the heads roll, nothing is going to improve," said some officials on the condition of anonymity.
When contacted a senior official at the CUS downplayed the matter. "Students always want to make mountain out of molehill. We'll look into the matter," the official said.
Meanwhile the students and their parents have appealed Governor SP Malik to personally look into the matter.
