Srinagar: BSC Nursing students of Government Nursing College, GMC Srinagar have appealed authorities to provide hostel facilities to them.
According to the students there is a full-fledged hostel block meant for girl students pursuing bachelor’s degree in the college but for some unknown reasons the accommodation is not being allotted to them.
Aisha (name changed) a student said that they are forced by the college authorities to have private accommodation outside the college that besides being unsafe for girls is unaffordable too.
The female students of the college alleged that they were forced to take classes even during the days of turmoil in the valley and were promised accommodation within the students’ hostel but were denied the facility later.
"We have many a times approached GMC principal about the issue but have as usual received hollow promises," the students rued adding ‘we fail to understand why our hostel is kept unused when we direly need it.’
The students appealed the chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti to intervene into the matter.
