Non-local B.Ed Students Cancel Return Flights En Masse As CM Departure Prompts Exam Postponement



Thousands of non-locals candidates who were scheduled to appear in the B.Ed. exams on Thursday were left in lurch following the demise of the CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

Soon after the news about his departure came out, Kashmir University postponed all the examinations. An estimated 8160 non-locals had flown down to Srinagar for appearing in exams and had booked return tickets for Friday. But due to the postponement of exams, they have caught themselves in the limbo.

“We have cancelled our tickets now,” said visibly depressed student. “We have the children out there to take care of. We hope that our exams are announced soon.”

The students are banking on the early restoration of the government which spiralled into crises as no one is heading it after Mufti passed away.

“If the issue stretches onto Monday, it will become difficult for us as it is the day when 3rd year is also scheduled to go for exams,” students said. “We want our exam to be conducted as early as possible.”​
