The Jammu University Teachers’ Association held a meeting convened by its president Kuldeep Singh Charak, here today.
During the meeting, association office-bearers expressed concern about the careers of students of the University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET) after the state government took a decision of taking over its control from the University of Jammu.
The association said the dharna for the past 15 days by students of the UIET demanded attention of all stakeholders of society. It said parents had send their wards to an A+ university college but the government’s decision to move to the Government College of Engineering and Technology, Janglote,did not augur well for thestudents’ careers.
The association president said the finances of the UIET were met by the university from its own resources. “The university, being an established system, was managing the institute professionally but unfortunately in December 2017, the Higher Education Department through a Cabinet decision declared the UIET a government college and asked the university to handover the UIET to the government for reasons best known to the department,” an association statement said.
The association requested the Higher Education Department to reconsider its decision so that the careers of students were saved.
