Jammu Tawi, April 19
Upping the ante against the bungling being committed in the Colleges Development Council (CDC), University of Jammu in extending affiliations of several B.Ed colleges which are still running without fulfilling the prescribed norms, the National Secular Forum (NSF) has demanded stern action against its Director and Vice Chancellor of the varsity.
Addressing a press conference here today, Dr Vikas Sharma, NSF state president while alleging large scale corruption in CDC mentioned that Inspection Committee Reports on B.Ed colleges were kept under wrap and no action was taken on their observations. “The reports have clearly stated that B.Ed colleges won’t fulfill prescribed norms hence their affiliation should not be extended. But, the director of CDC instead of recommending action, playing silently,” he said.
Dr Sharma revealed that B.Ed were illegally enrolling students and JU authorities busy in regularizing those which is a height of corruption in the department. “Maximum reports have highlighted that colleges were running without regular Principals and even students were taking classes,” he added.
He urged the Governor (Chancellor of the University) to take cognizance of the issue and take action against Director CDC and the Vice Chancellor for making CDC a breeding ground of corruption. Among those who were present in the press-conference included Papinder Singh, and Manmohan Singh.
