Srinagar – With its annual convocation barely days away, the Kashmir University has been accused of taking arbitrary decisions and flouting rules in selections for gold medals in some courses.
Students who have qualified the first class first position in B.A Fazil, Music and Fine Arts and MEMP courses in first attempt, have been exempted from receiving a gold medal in the upcoming convocation, a group of students told the KNS.
Despite a Kashmir University notification nominating Sabira for a gold medal and asking her to fulfill formalities, she was not even intimated by the department about the new nomination. She was given the reason that she had cleared one of her subject in backlog. But the truth is that she qualified the subject as a later on case due to illness, one student said.
A student of BSc IT is also being denied the award because of discrimination,” the group said .
The Kashmir University is governed by the rule of arbitrariness, and not by the rule of law. They can change and amend rules for their own interest without following any procedure, it said, requesting the state governor in his capacity as the chancellor of the varsity to intervene in the matter.
