Advocate Ashraf Ali from Minority dept of JKPCC, today raised demand for a university campus in Karnah, to lessen the backwardness and apathy to some extent.
“Students are forced to leave Karnah for higher studies, and pay huge amounts of fees and rents. No political party bothered to think to build a university campus in Karnah for the poor students,” he said.
He added, “The people of Karnah already suffer because they remain cut off from rest of the Valley in winters. The area was designated as Tehsil long back, but has been forced to remain backward because of the political apathy.”
