Srinagar: Students of Islamic University of Science and technology Awantipora are up in arms against the varisty authorities for not providing them the bus service during examination.
A number of students and teachers called Kashmir Today about the issue. They said they are facing hardships due to non availability of transport.
University has a fleet of more than 50 buses which ply on different routes of various districts, a group of students told Kashmir Today, “We fail to understand why University has parked it’s bus fleet when they know how difficult it is for students to reach University in public transport.”
Speaking with Kashmir Today, IUST student, Ifrah Imtiyaz (name changed) said “It’s sad to see how University has parked it’s bus fleet during examination when punctuality is most important. I are sure many students may have missed the examinations and more will miss.”
However an IUST official, wished not to be named said that University has refunded the transport fee of the students for this session. and “University is already short of resources. So it is not feasible for us to run our own transport”
