KL News Network


Three years after Government Degree College Kangan was inaugurated in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district, the institute continues to face acute shortage of furniture and other basic facilities, students complained.

The students who are studying in the school also criticised the education department for its negligence and said they have approached the authorities several times over the hardships faced by the students but to no avail.

According to the students, the college is also grappling with shortage of permanent staff.

Sources said that the only principal and another staff member are permanent while rest of the teaching faculty is engaged on the contractual basis.

The students urged higher ups of the education department to look into the matter and full fill their demands at earliest.

Amir Farooq, a local student said, “In case the government failed to full fill their demands, we will take to streets.”

He said that the college currently runs in the ITI building as the main college building is still under construction and may take more years for the completion.

Mehraj-ud-din, another student said, “The frequent presence of locals and animals in the college premises is irking them as the building is without proper fencing,” he said.
