AISA demands ending the deadlock on the issue of shifting of Engineering College from North Campus

In a press statement AISA has wished to express their disappointment and concern at the way the government of Jammu and Kashmir is handling the issue of shifting of the engineering college from North campus to Zakura. AISA Stated – “ It is sad that the North Campus is being starved for facilities and the students are being made to suffer endlessly due to this political deadlock. We believe that the academic interests of students must be kept at the forefront of every decision. Ahead of the Academic Council meeting, we appeal to the Vice-Chancellor and members of the Academic Council to prioritise their role as academicians first and help to end this political deadlock.”
AISA appealed to the other stakeholders to realize the harm that this deadlock is doing to the education and career of students of Computer Science department of North Campus. AISA Statement reads – “The other stakeholders need to realize that there is no point in having a defunct facility in Baramulla. It is sad that the fund-starved campus facility is being used to please vested political interests. It is a fraud being committed with the people of Baramulla. The people of Baramulla are being made to think that a favour is being bestowed upon them in the name of a defunct facility in the name of the engineering college. Facilities at the campus must be improved and, until that is done, the shifting of engineering college to Zakura campus cannot be indefinitely postponed. The students had been promised that the campus would be shifted and the promise must be fulfilled.”
AISA added –“The genuine demands of the students must be fulfilled and academics should be the prime concern. It is a sad state of affairs where the students are being made to starve for facilities in their campus facility but are being held hostage to political interests. This deadlock must end and the suffering of students should be put to an end.”
