Harsh seeks commencement of classes in Degree College Majalta

Haling the decision of Supreme Court of India directing the State Government to establish Degree College in Majalta, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman and Former Minister today called for start of admissions for Part-I course of graduation from the current academic
session itself.
He regretted that the J&K government which had been bound by the Supreme Court to issue the order for establishment of Degree College in Majalta before July 15, 2016 on a petition filed by Sarpanches of Tehsil Majalta in case titled Karnail Singh Sarpanch and others Vs State of J&K had delayed the process which could eventually effect the start of academic session in the said college during the present academic session.
Reminding the state government of the Supreme Court directions for filing the compliance report before the Apex Court on July 18, 2016 on which date the case was again listed, Harsh Dev Singh maintained that it was not merely a question of the issuance of establishment order of the college but the said college has got to be made functional before that date.
Complimenting the Sarpanches of Tehsil Majalta for their sustained and relentless fight in the said courts which lasted for five years, Harsh Dev Singh hailed the Supreme Court of India for ensuring justice to the deprived area of Majalta where majority of the students especially girl students abandoned their studies after 10+2. He said that more than a dozen 10+2 Schools in the area churned out hundreds and thousands of furnished products who were however deprived of the facility of Higher Education due to non availability of Degree College in the area or its vicinity. The Sarpanches had duly annexed with the writ petition dozens of communications made by Harsh Dev Singh with the union and state governments including Prime Minister, University grants commission and J&K Chief Minister as annexures wherein assurances had given by the latter but their implementation delayed. The Sarpanches who had filed the petition before the High Court and later became Respondents before the Supreme Court included Karnail Singh Sarpanch, Rajesh Kumar Sarpanch, Dharam Singh Sarpanch, Balwant Raj Sarpanch, Dina Nath Sarpanch, Raj Kumar Sarpanch, Mohd Saleem Sarpanch, Abdul Rashid Sarpanch, Balwan Singh Sarpanch.
