Jammu Tawi, Nov 09: Referring to the AAP’s education model in Delhi which has gained international recognition,
AAP’s senior state spokesperson Jagdeep Singh said that this model will be replicated in Jammu
Kashmir once AAP Government comes into office and government schools of Jammu Kashmir
will also be made at par with top institutions of country so that hardships being faced by the
students enrolled in Government schools come to an end.
Terming poor state of education sector in Jammu Kashmir as a sign of failure of successive
Governments, Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday said that vacant posts, improper pupil teacher
ratio, lack of basic infrastructure in Government schools shows that there is a vast scope of development in the sector which otherwise is one of the most important sector for any government
Ranging from slow and improper upgradation of existing schools to poor implementation of
schemes, the education sector in Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed one of the worst callous
handling by successive governments.
“It is because of this failure of successive governments that a number of Government schools in
Jammu and Kashmir and especially in hilly districts like Rajouri, Poonch, Reasi, Chenab valley
and parts of Kashmir valley are without a good building and many of these schools are either
being run from temporary structures like tents or in rented accommodations” Jagdeep Singh
He further added that work on construction of new buildings of hundreds of schools in Jammu
and Kashmir is going on since years and decades but are hanging midway due to paucity of
funds which clearly shows that Jammu and Kashmir Government gives least priority to the
education sector and no much concern is paid.
“When the building of a government school is either under construction for decades or has turned
dilapidated within years of construction than it clearly depicts that the education sector is the
least prioritised sector in Jammu and Kashmir” he said.
AAP’s senior state spokesperson Jagdeep Singh further mentioned improper pupil teacher ratio,
lack of basic infrastructure including desks, dilapidated buildings as a sorry state of affairs which
can even narrate hardships being faced by children studying in Government schools of Jammu
He said that a number of teachers belonging to influential families are enjoying their attachments
in capital cities and these employees have been attached, keeping the norms with all claims of
Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor administration for bringing transparency in system fall
completely flat when it comes to take action against these influential Government employees.
