Srinagar, Apr 21: The students of Srinagar Womens College are up in arms against the authorities for what they said lack of infrastructures facilities at the college’s makeshift campus in the City.
In 2008, the then Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had allotted this college space at the library block of Amar Singh College on temporary basis.
The new college was established to compensate the rush of growing roll at Womens College MA Road. But four years on the college functions from the makeshift accommodation at AS College, as it’s yet to get a proper accommodation.
A delegation of the girl students told Greater Kashmir that: “We are facing lot of hardships due to shortage of the space.”
While the number of students is around 1200, there’s mere one loo for them. The campus has no playfield, drinking water facility or library. “We are facing huge inconvenience,” the students said.
When contacted Nodal Officer Principal Amar Singh College, Professor Zahoor Ahmad Chatt said the government has procured land for the college at Zakura, and the construction work would be started soon.
The students coming from the south City areas however said it would be too far to go to Zakura area for them.
