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

Kathua rape case: Mobile internet services temporarily suspended in Srinagar to check rumour-mongering

Minister for Education, Finance and Labour & employment, Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Sunday said all those private tuition centres which offer tuitions up to class 12th will be closed for time being and the decision in this regard will be reviewed on fortnightly basis.

Education Minister said that during the discussion in the meeting many such points were discussed, due to which the students' attention was diverting from studies. "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". "We by request and by passing an official order will ask coaching centers to shut their shops", Bukhari told reporters after a meeting of chief education officers, zonal education officers and principals of higher secondary schools here.

"It is unusual 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.

A police spokesman said some miscreants indulged in stone-pelting to enforce a shutdown in Anantnag town. The protestors were students of Government Degree College, who marched to KP Road shouting slogans and with banners, Kashmir Reader reported.
