Early Times Report

Srinagar, July 7: While as the Jammu and Kashmir government has directed the Higher Education institutions like colleges and universities to remain closed till July end in the wake of rising Covid-19 cases, the Kashmir University has declined to adhere to the orders drawing flak from varsity staff and students who smell a rat in the defiance. Officials said the Higher Education department recently passed orders that classwork at all the higher education institutions in Jammu and Kashmir would remain suspended till July 31 and that staff would work from home while the students have been asked to attend online classes.
However, sources said the Kashmir University declined to buy the official order and went ahead with its procedure of asking the staff to be present at the campus while students were also being called for “special classes.” The university has also given a go ahead for holding of exams in the coming days drawing flak from students who said their life was being risked.
Sources said in the wake of the order issued by Higher Education Department, the staff at Kashmir University approached the office of Registrar seeking exemption from attending duties at campus as eleven out of twelve districts in Kashmir have been declared red zones.
The office, as per the staff, is understood to have told them that the order issued by government of Jammu and Kashmir was not applicable for KU.
A delegation of teachers said some of the officials at the KU have “very personal interests” in making the staff and students come to the campus during restrictions to hold “special meetings.”
“Asking staff and students to come is an excuse to hold personal meetings with a selected few. Let the government order an inquiry and also access CCTV footage and things will be clear and exposed,” said a delegation of staff on the condition of anonymity.
When contacted a senior official in the Higher Education Department said the matter would be looked into.
The KU officials, however, said they have not received any intimation from government to keep the varsity shut.
Meanwhile the staff at Kashmir University has appealed Lieutenant Governor LG Murmu to get an inquiry initiated into what “personal interests do some officials have in keeping the university campus open during restrictions.”
