Coaching centres a 'distraction', to be shut for now

Coaching centres a 'distraction', to be shut for now

"It is odd that on one hand, education minister appeals students to return to class work but on the other hand, issues orders depriving them of using coaching centres to improve their talent and skill", MLA Langate said. "They tried to fire teargas canisters into protesting students inside the campus and also heckled me when I tried to stop them from entering the campus", one of the principals told the meeting. "Bukhari needs to keep in mind that J&K is one state and in all the competitive exams the merit has to be considered at state level, thus allowing coaching centres in Jammu and Ladakh to function but banning them in Kashmir will certainly have huge impact on the outcome of academic and professional examinations". Perhaps the attendance of the students in coaching centers is more than schools.

Similar reports of protests and clashes were received from Ajas Bandipora, Delina and Boniyar Baramulla where students of high and higher secondary schools staged protests and clashed with forces. "If the protests happen then it will remain shut permanently and nobody should tell us why they are not being reopened".

Bukhari said the government will work out a strategy on how to tackle student protests.

Asked whether schools and college will be reopened on Monday, he said, "Opening or closing of colleges has nothing to do with my meeting".

"My impression is that they are children and they should be treated as children (till) they limit themselves within the premises of school, college or university..."

Chairman of JKLF (H), Javaid Ahmad Mir, while talking to Kashmir News Bureau stated - "The government has failed on all counts and making innocent students scapegoat for its failures". Law and order is a problem which is dealt by them. He appealed to parents to help the government in keeping schools and colleges open.

Bukhari also asked the director of school education, Kashmir to submit a list of teachers, masters and lecturers who work in private coaching centres. The move comes after protests organised by students over the murder and alleged rape of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua.
