Will Guv Admin give nod to proposed Guru Nanak, Trans World, Sheikh-ul-Aalam Universities?

Srinagar, Jun 14: The government claims about creating high quality infrastructure in Jammu and Kashmir has put a question mark over ‘halting’ the process of establishing the universities by different religious groups here.
The Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik had stated that it is his endeavour that high quality education infrastructure is created in the State so that students here need not go outside to seek admissions in colleges and Universities of other States.
However, the statement comes at a time when some of the religious groups here including Jamiat-ul-Ahlihadees and Karwan-e-Islami and Sikh community are seeking permission for the setting up of universities.
The proposal of universities including Trans World Muslim University, Sheikh-ul-Aalam Research, and Technical University, Guru Nanak University and others was sent to the government couple of years ago but the permission has not been granted to the seekers so far.
Meanwhile, the locals hailed the Governor’s statement wherein he had said that his administration was mulling to create high quality education in Jammu and Kashmir.
However, they said that in case the Governor was serious to ensure high quality education then he should also give approval to these organizations for the setting up of universities, which will certainly help in providing the quality education.
Meanwhile, Secretary Higher education, Talat Parvez said that once the decks will be cleared, all such proposals whether new or old will be examined accordingly.
He said that the Governor has a desire to do strengthening of private investment in higher education sector and his desire has to be drought on policy matters. (KNS)
