Schools Reopened But Students are Missing in J&K

Schools Reopened

On September 5, which is observed as the Teacher’s Day, the Covid containment guidelines issued by the J&K government permitted students of Class 10 and 12 to attend the schools, yet with the rider that only 50 per cent of the enrolled number could participate on a given day. Yet another rider was that the class 12 students needed to be fully vaccinated while Class 10 students would have to undergo a RAT or RT-PCR test before entering the campus.

The order of conditional reopening of the school has got a mild reaction from the students and the parents in the UT. However, even after the order came into effect, the schools have yet to witness the buzz of students. So now the question arises why students are not ready to attend physical classes?

In the same regard, JK Media talked with Balbir Singh Manhas, President of the Co-operative School of Education and Research Institute. While speaking, Balbir said, “It’s very grateful that the government has ordered the reopening of schools but with certain conditions. The main problem stopping students from coming to school is that when a student reaches 12th standard, he doesn’t get 18-year-old and without the minimum age, he can’t be inoculated. Also, with many such conditions, hardly any student will come to school”.

“In my opinion, the government should revise the conditions of reopening schools. The government should order the reopening of schools in a phased manner without many such conditions. Although virtual classes are being held and students attend that, proper education demands physical presence in schools”, Manhas added.

Reliance Retail Store

Despite the formation of a Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu bandh on Wednesday had an overall effect in protest against the continuing discrimination from the Jammu division and not taking care of the business interests of Jammu. As a result, business establishments remained closed in Jammu and other districts during the bandh.

 

Shops remained closed in most of the markets of Jammu city during the bandh. Except for medicine shops, all other shops have been closed since morning. Since today’s bandh was for the issues of the traders, the traders kept their shops closed without any coercion.

 

Supporting the Jammu bandh, on Wednesday, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association also suspended work today. As a result, the lawyers did not appear during the hearing of the cases during this period, due to which the court work was also affected to some extent.

 

During the Jammu bandh, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry workers, Jammu demonstrated outside the Chamber House located at Railhead Complex. In contrast, the shopkeepers of Traders Federation Ware House-Nehru Market demonstrated outside the Ware House during the bandh. Warehouse traders mainly opposed the opening of Reliance Retail store, saying that they would oppose the government’s move till the end.
