Jammu, Sept 17: Hailing decision of the State Administrative Council (SAC) headed by Governor Satya Pal Malik Government to open 40 new degree colleges in different parts of the state, senior BJP leader and member Monitoring Committee For Minorities Education, Ministry of HRD Union Government Pawan Sharma today emphasized on the need of rational distribution of these colleges to cater need of deserving areas.
In a statement issued here today, Sharma sought to draw attention of Governor’s administration towards problems being faced by the students of Jammu region due to non availability of seats in degree colleges.
He demanded that out of these 40 new degree colleges, two boys and one woman degree college must be allotted to Jammu city in order to ease the pressure on existing colleges.
Pawan Sharma has further suggested the SAC to open one women degree college each in Kishtwar, Bhaderwah, Rajouri and Poonch district, so that more rural women could pursue higher education. He said that opening of women degree colleges in remotest areas would give a big relief to the needy and deserving females who could not pursue their higher education due to non availability of facilities in their respective areas.
“A number of students from Jammu are forced to take admission outside the state due to non availability of seats in the existing degree colleges”, he said and hoped that opening of 40 new colleges would solve the problem once for all.
Sharma further asked the government to introduce job oriented courses in these degree colleges so that students after completing their graduations would get placements and jobs in different sectors.
Pawan Sharma further asked SAC to constitute committee as early as possible so that this panel would examine feasibility of opening new colleges in different areas.
While announcing the open new degree colleges, SAC had decided to constitute a committee to finalise the phasing of the sanctioned colleges.
