Srinagar, 05 Nov: Paramedical students studying in Srinagar, on Friday staged a protest outside Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar, demanding conduction of online examinations for them.
Scores of first year paramedical students assembled in the Kaka Sarai area of Srinagar, outside GMC Srinagar and raised slogans against the college administration for delaying their examinations for almost two years.
The protesting students were raising slogans viz: ‘we want justice’, ‘we are here to serve and not to suffer’ and ‘we want online examinations’.
One of the protesting females said that they were enrolled for a two year long course; however two years have already passed since we joined, but not a single examination for us has been conducted so far.”
“The course is of two year long duration, but two years have already passed and we are still in the first year, as not a single exam of ours has been conducted so far,’ said another student.
Another student said that when they approach college authorities, with a plea to conduct their exams, they are being denied the demand on one or the other pretext.
“First lockdown related to revocation of Article 370 was an excuse and now it is Covid-19”, she said.
“Why can’t they conduct online exams for us and save our career, if Covid-19 is the impediment,” she added.
The protesting students demanded that their examinations should be immediately held, if not a s regular exams, then through an online method. (KDC)
