Indifferent attitude of university authorities alienate students, allege lack of teaching staff and basic facilities in campus
urge authorities to hold semester exams simultaneously with main campus

Leh(Ladakh), April 16, (Scoop News)-Students studying in various faculties at Leh university campus complained of step motherly treatment being meted out to them by Kashmir based university authorities.

They said after winter vacations were over and when they resumed their classes they were shocked to find the campus being run without any visible administration including teaching and non teaching staff barring class IV employees.

“After nearly four months of winter break when classes resumed their work, everything here in the campus has been in total disarray.

They alleged that there was a deliberate attempt to delay examination due to lack of coordination between the officials of main campus and Leh campus besides non availability of stationery items for holding of the test.
