BSC Nursing students pursuing bachelor’s degree at Government Nursing College, GMC Srinagar complained that they were facing tremendous hardships for want of hostel facility.

The students said that even as “there is a full-fledged hostel block meant for girl students pursuing bachelor’s degree in the college,” it is not being allotted to the students for unknown reasons.

The students said they were being forced by the college authorities to hire private accommodation outside the college “which besides being unsafe for girls is costlier.”

“Three principals have changed in the college and all had promised allotment of hostel to us during their tenure,” the students said, adding that “they are very hopeful this time with the new principal who herself being a female can understand our miseries of being denied the hostel facility within the college campus."
