The year 2020, marks the thirtieth annual commemoration of Kashmir Solidarity Day. Every year since 1990, Pakistanis mark February 5 with various rallies and protests to express solidarity with their Kashmiri brethren and call on the world to let Kashmiris decide their fate as per UN resolutions that guarantee their right to self-determination.

University Grants Commission is the primary regulatory body that controls, coordinates, maintains and determines the standards of higher education in India. This statutory body was established by the Indian Union government in accordance to the UGC Act 1956, under Ministry of Human Resource Development. The Bharatiya Janata Party’s 2014 manifesto promised to restructure and revitalize the University Grants Commission India, a promise that is yet to be fulfilled. Four years and several false starts later, in July 2018, the Modi government drafted a bill to scrap off the plan in a bid to replace the commission with Higher Education Council of India; with completely different functions and administrative composition.
