At least 40 Kashmiri students who had sought admission under Prime Ministers Special Scholarship Scheme have been asked to vacate the college in Haryana.
A delegation of parents from different districts of Kashmir Valley told CNS that their wards had joined Saweera Group of Institutions located in Farooq Nagar Gurgoan Haryana on promise of scholarship under the PMSSS.
“These 40 students had joined the College in August 2012 with the help of an educational consultancy. However, the students have been asked to vacate the college after the authorities realized that MHRD may not release their scholarship amount,” they said.
“Our children were admitted in this college with the promise that MHRD will grant us scholarship. But after studying in the college for last two years they are being forced to leave the college. We are so disturbed and anxious about the future of our children,” Abdul Majid from Kupwara said.
The parents said that they brought the issue into the notice of Higher Education Minister as well but there was no positive outcome. They appealed to the government to look into the matter and secure the future of these students.
