Bhadarwah: Akhil Bhartiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) came in support of college students in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bhadarwah on Tuesday demanding that the examinations scheduled from 22 January 2021 be postponed. Bhadarwah unit of ABVP along with students say that online classes conducted this year were not effective as they did not have access to the high speed internet.Protesting students on Tuesday took to various online platforms to protest. Beside at PG College Bhadarwah, they held physical protests demanding either syllabus should be curtailed or examinations should should postponed to March.Secretary ABVP Sandeep Charak , while leading the protest said that students want all stakeholders to be consulted before the university announces the examination timetable. Considering the extraordinary situation and challenges posed due to the pandemic and 2G network in Jammu and Kashmir, the examination should be postponed, she stated and added that the postponement policy should be devised as per the requirements of students addressing specific issues especially those residing in far off hilly areas.“If they can allow political rallies then what is the problem in conducting physical classes. University authorities are making lamb excuses to restart classes thereby playing with the future of students,” said Sandeep Charak.A few students pointed out that they did not have access to mobile phones or the internet to benefit from online classes. While most of the colleges have been holding online classes for the students, it has turned out to be a bane for students for J&K who do not have internet/ mobile phones/ Tablets and above all because of 2G network. Therefore, they requested the Jammu University authorities to postpone exams till March 2021.Some students requested to reduce the syllabus of BA and BSc part one exams to reduce the stress and burden.“We could not benefit from online classes. While most of the online classes are being taught through PPT presentations, poor internet speed reduced the quality of online lectures. We even posted screenshots of the video quality of online classes to the authorities, but they still came up with the date sheet of the exams on 5th January giving us jus 15 days to prepare, which is practically impossible,” said Tehmina, student of BA part adding that they will continue their protest unless their demands are met with.Later students also took out a rally and submitted a memorandum to ADC Bhaderwah Rakesh Kumar in support of their demands.Due to the pandemic followed by nationwide lockdown, all the educational institutions were closed in March, although authorities started online classes but due to 2G network in Jammu and Kashmir, students could not get benefit from it, hence they came to street demanding either to curtail the syllabus or postponement of exams till March.
