Bibi Haleema College students continue strike
Srinagar, Nov 7: Students of Bibi Haleema College of Nursing and Medical Technology here Wednesday alleged that the college authorities were threatening them to call off their strike.
The protesting students said the college authorities “told us that they would fail us in coming exams if we don’t call off the strike.”
The students have been protesting against “official apathy” in getting the college registered by authorities outside the state which would enable them to earn jobs or higher degrees outside the state.
Meanwhile Principal of the College Tanveera Makhdoomi admitted that the future of the college students was dark.
“Their future is really dark and I agree it is painful,” she said. However, she said she had twice met the Punjab Nursing Registration Council (PNR) authorities who in turn assured her of immediate registration.
