Srinagar, Oct 27 (UNI) The Kashmir University (KU) has appealed to state administration to spare the teaching and non-teaching staff from assembly election duty as the university examinations will start from November 15, two days prior to the first phase of polling in ten Assembly segments.
However, there would be no examinations of any class on the polling days, controller examination of the KU said.
He said the university authorities had written a letter to authorities requesting them not to deploy KU teaching and non-teaching staff on poll duty.
Deployment of KU staff will badly hit the examination schedule, he said.
He said the examinations of different classes will start from November 15 and will be completed in the first week of January next year.
However, the authorities have directed the teaching and non-teaching staff of almost all colleges affiliated with the KU to report in their respective Deputy Commissioners office for poll training.
The teaching staff and students said it was a deliberate attempt to play with the academic carrier of the students, who have already lost three months during Shri Amarnath Shrine land row.
