SRINAGAR:A member of the Student Welfare Organisation, Danish Bhat, Tuesday said the government is least bothered about the careers of the students.
“We were really disappointed the way Chief Minister behaved, Danish said. “She had no answers to our questions. It seems government is hell-bent to conduct the exams with a hope that it will bring normalcy in Valley.”
We were shocked when the Chief Minister said she had passed the exams by relishing gol gapay. “If I could study while relishing gol gappy, why can’t you,” Danish claimed Mehbooba as having said.
“Our demands are genuine,” Danish Bhat, president JKSWA told Chief Minister during the interaction. “How can we appear in exams when 60 per cent of our syllabus is incomplete and there have been zero practicals.” Besides the atmosphere is not conducive,” Danish told Chief Minister during the interaction.
He claimed that some female students in a ‘stage-managed’ show protested outside CM residence on Monday were hired by the government.
“We in fact asked Chief Minister to identify those students who were ‘keen’ to appear in the examination when she repeatedly told us that parents and students are appreciating her decision of conducting examination in November,” Danish said.
He said if the government didn’t change its mind, the students will not only boycott the examinations but will come out on the roads against the what he called ‘callous and heartless’ government.
Meanwhile the students here staged a protest and alleged that government wants to use students for its ‘nefarious’ designs.
The students assembled in Press Enclave Srinagar under the banner of Jammu Kashmir Students Welfare Association alleged that government is least bothered about the welfare and careers of the students. “We request government to postpone exams till March next year and if it doesn’t do so, we will boycott these examinations,” the protesting students said.
The protesting students also appealed government to release all the students from jails so that they could prepare themselves for the examinations. “Government should also think about those pellet and bullet hit students who have been undergoing treatment in different hospitals of valley,” they said and alleged that the diktat of the government will be vehemently countered.
