BADC Demands Law College in Border District Poonch

Jammu and Kashmir Border Area Development Conference(JK_BADC), a registered organization working for the welfare of residents of borders areas of J & K has asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to establish a government law college in border district Poonch.

Dr Shazad Ahmed Malik, Chairman of the BADC and former Vice Chancellor of the Sai Nath University who is also native of district Poonch has informed that during his recent interactions with the students in different blocks and Panchayats of Poonch, several of these students have desired to pursue law as career but in absence of any law college in Poonch or even in Rajouri they have to move to either Jammu or to other parts of the country, therefore many of them remain unable to pursue the course of their choice.

Dr Shazad stated that during last over a decade there is a surge of students choosing law course hailing from Rajouri and Poonch and many of them are now serving the legal profession with dedication and have made the region proud.

He demanded that it is high time that in border areas of J & K the government must provide diversified options of subjects to the students & youth to make a vibrant society and for overall development of the backward regions.

The BADC Chairman said the demanded new law college should offer 3 years Post graduation course as well as 5 year LLB course after 12th Class.

The former VC stated thar the demand for establishing law college in Poonch is absolutely justifiable as it would also helpful to the nearby district of Rajouri and Shopian.
