Calling students ‘rowdies’ unacceptable, revoke order closing tuition centres in Kashmir: AIP Prez


Srinagar, Apr 22 :- Appealing Education Minister to reconsider his decision to close tuition centers and coaching centers for 90 days in valley, Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) president Er Sheikh Abdul Rashid said that the move is unjustified, harsh and unacceptable.
“While the Education Minister has always been showing keen interest in bringing the derailed education system back to track but his decision to shut down coaching centers in Kashmir valley seems an action of revenge against the student community who are our future and are well within their limits to protest against Kuthua incident,” Er Rashid, who is MLA from Langate in north Kashmir, said in a statement issued here on Sunday.
He said it is strange that on one hand the Education Minister appeals students to return to class work but on the other hand issues orders depriving them of using coaching centers to improve their talent and skill.
“Mr 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 centers in Jammu and Ladakh to function but banning them in Kashmir will certainly have huge impact on the outcome of academic and professional examinations,” he said.
Er Rashid said that the government needs to be reminded that students are not rowdies and such words don’t suit the stature of the Education Minister.
