SRINAGAR The mismanagement and lack of accountability at the Kashmir University has left the students in the lurch, National Conference said on Saturday.
The party expressed concern over the chaos and mismanagement in examinations and student affairs at the varsity.
In a statement, NCs provincial spokesperson, Imran Nabi Dar, said that functioning of Kashmir University administration in conducting the examinations is dismal. Recently hundreds of college students had to face bizarre situation across Kashmir when they turned up to write examination papers for Geography but the question paper supplied by the university authorities was of Geology, he said.
He said that such bizarre incidents have become order of the day. A large number of Persian literature students had to return from the exam centre without writing their paper when authorities at the University of Kashmir had forgotten to print the question papers after announcing dates for the college examination.
Imran said that the drastic increase in fee structure of PhD scholars and students is also pushing the students to wall.
The authorities should review the fee structure of students. The stipend for the scholars should be increased and disbursed speedily, he said.
Provincial spokesperson said the university has maintained silence on this issue and the student fraternity is bearing the brunt of their negligence.
Imran urged upon the government to take immediate measures to bring respite to students and scholars and hold the erring people responsible for their misdeeds.
The educational institutions are not working properly and the need of the hour is to maintain accountability at all levels.
