Shifting of KU north campus Rumours spark protest at Delina
Baramulla, Sep 16: Students of University of Kashmir north campus Delina and the local residents staged a protest here on Friday over the rumors of shifting of KU’s north campus from Delina to Tulbal Sopore.
The angry protesters blocked the Srinagar- Baramulla highway at Delina, for about half an hour demanding that state government should explain its position on the issue.
“Conspiracy is being hatched by some vested interested to shift the north campus of KU from Delina. We will never allow such thing to happen” said Bashir Ahmad of Delina.
Sources said that issue came to fore a few days back when a local politician revealed in a private function that Government is planning to shift the campus due to the “scarcity of land’ to some other place, preferably Tulbal Sopore.
Though authorities here confirmed that there is no such proposal and even work on the north campus project is still on at good pace.
“There is no such proposal and it seems that rumors are being spread just to disrupt the academic session in the campus” said Deputy Commissioner Baramulla.
When contacted Director Kashmir University north campus, Iqbal Hakeem, described rumors as baseless.
“There is no question of shifting the north campus however for the expansion of the campus we require more land. Presently north campus has 270 kanals of land which is not sufficient for the future prospects of the institution. We hope more land will be available in the area so that a vision of a mini university is formulated.”
