Students faces hardship during academic session
By RAJA SHAFQAT SHEIKH
Chenab Valley, July 06: No doubt that central and State Government have launched various schemes for poor students to avail benifits and receive education free of cost in
government institutions. These schemes are implemented through a proper guidance and
publicity through social and print media across the State. Mostly government is giving top priority to Schedule Caste, Schedule Tribe and Other Backward Class students to take education and
increase literacy rate in Jammu and Kashmir . As most of the students belonging from poor communities call off their
studies as they are not having any source of income resulting that illiteracy rate increases of such students.
Taking a look on morden education in Chenab Valley, ” No one can trust what is happening in
government institutions and what teachers are doing during their duties, are students interested in
learning lessons in class or not, why results of board exams fall in Chenab Valley”.
I Shafqat Sheikh being a resident of remote region Bunjwah,
opinioning the fact of above said points, “that Chenab Valley became hub of political parties and politicians who for their gain do nothing in modernisation of educational institutions. Self
interested politicians opened hundreds of primary and middle schools to give benifits to their close party workers not to poor who was deserving”.
The schools were opened through proper documentation and reports and those who were appointed as
teachers through Rahber re Taleem or General Line Rules accordingly. After opening of school, these schools were combined and teachers were posted in combined school .
” I would like to ask from Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir State Mehbooba Mufti that if schools were opened for providing basic education to poor
and downtrodden students in nearby schools through a proper criteria and guidelines , then what
is the reason for combining , was it only to benifit their own party workers ,was the documentation
fraud when schools were opened , who is responsible”?
The poor and downtrodden public of Chenab Valley is waiting for your answer through an official
Being a citizen, I also applied for said post in year 2013, not having huge source of money and political protocol, the same criteria was changed and other one was appointed on basis of
money and politics. I am not against the same, “I would like to ask from every section of society,
was the decision of ReT and General Line Teachers
appointment done on justice or not, Why the deserving canidates were neglected”?
Besides all this, I have inspected various schools across Chenab Valley and particularly Doda and
Kishtwar Districts, and saw that mostly the schools are in defunct position and if they are opened only one or two teachers visit there and perform their
” One who is teacher of government school seeks
admission of his son or daughter in a private school and tells that private school teacher teaches
well to students beside government school”.
Opinioning the fact I would like to ask them that why you as a teacher of Government school prefers to seek admission in private school, you having source of income do so, what a poor father can do as he is not having
better source of income?
Happening so in government schools, students also donot pay any heed towards their studies as
teachers are not interested to perform their duties.
Few days back, I received information that various schools are sans infrastructure and teaching staff in various schools of Doda and Kishtwar Districts and
concerned authorties didn’t pay any heed towards this issue. I would like to ask that why
representatives didn’t take the issue of educational institutions on peak , why they are in
If State Government is paying crores of rupees in the name of salary of teachers, why not they
checkout their record of duties and schools?
Surprisingly my friend asked a 5th class students to spell the letters that makes word Thursday; he
failed and didn’t know the spelling of Thursday. It is the condition of government school from where
Resulting mostly the poor and downtrodden students remain illiterate and don’t get benefit of
government schemes that were launched in modernisation of Educational sector in Chenab
Will State Government take issue on peak or not? It
is yet to be mentioned.
