Srinagar, July 24: Kashmiri students have sought intervention of Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh after many educational institutes in the State are pressing for the payment of semester fee amid the Coronovirus pandemic.
“We urge Chief Minister Punjab to direct colleges and universities to extend the date for depositing the fee,” they said.
Recently President Global Students Union Jammu Kashmir, Peer Tehleel Manzoor in a communiqué to Punjab Chief Minister claimed that several colleges and universities have been asking Kashmiri students to pay their semester fee and attend online classes.
“This is bizarre, rather shocking, that many Punjab-based colleges and universities are continuously asking students to submit their semester fee within days, which is not possible owing to the ongoing crisis said,” Tehleel Manzoor told news agency KNT.
He said due to a ban on 4G services in the Valley, Kashmiri students can’t even attend online classes and take exams.
According to the letter, the students Welfare body has received hundreds of distress calls from students saying that colleges and universities are forcing them to pay fee online.
The students have sought intervention of Punjab Chief Minister and appealed him to allay the sufferings of students. (KNT)
