BJP will remove 370 now: Kavinder Gupta

NIN NEWS SERVICE | SRINAGAR, MAY 25: Senior Leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the former deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Kavinder Gupta said BJP in very clear terms has said that if Article 370 separated Kashmir from India it would be undesirable for us and BJP will remove 370 now.

In an conversation with News Agency Gupta said, “If there were some good things in the Article 370 then we were ready to adopt but there is nothing good in article 370 and 35A, and it’s time to remove both the article from Jammu and Kashmir”.

Gupta said that the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution continues to be part of the party's core ideology and it will work in that direction whenever it garners the required numbers in Parliament.

"As far as the abrogation of Article 370 is concerned, it continues to be part of the core ideology of BJP, but right now we don't have enough numbers in Parliament to do away with it ... but in future when we have the required numbers we will work towards its removal," Kavinder Gupta said in an interview with PTK.

Strike of SSA Teachers

Category: Editorial

    RAJNI SHARMA ||| 

 The Continuous strike of the SSA teachers in the state has collapsed the education system in the state particularly in the far flung areas of the state, where these SSA teachers are responsible for the functioning of these schools. In these areas the schools are virtually closed since last month and the government has failed in solving the problems of these protesting teachers. They are demanding payment of their salaries on the regular basis as their monthly salaries are not released for months, creating great problems for these teachers. Their salary is provided under the central scheme SSA for which the funds are provided by the union government. But the state government has misused the funds, as a result the teachers appointed under this scheme have to wait months for their salaries. Now these protesting teachers are demanding de-linking of their salaries from the central funds to the state budget but the state government has not come with any concrete plan to address this issue. Lately the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has directed to release 147 croreRs for their salaries, which h is a welcome step but need is that the issue of their salaries be solved permanently, so that they are not forced to come on roads time and again for the resolution  of their problems.

So far as the education sector of the state is concerned, it has always been accorded step motherly treatment and it is the one such sector which has been ignored in every field. May it be the issue of staff or infrastructure, there is not a single school which functions with the full sanctioned strength of the staff. Due to the non- seriousness, the education sector is suffering in the state. Shortage of teaching staff, inadequate infrastructure, accommodation problems are some of the problems which the govt. schools in the state are facing with. These deficiencies have badly affected the education sector. It has been observed that in the urban areas of the state, the teaching-staff is surplus and other facilities are also available but in the rural areas the position is altogether changed, In the rural areas all the educational institutions are facing acute problems of staff, buildings and other infrastructure, which is evident from the fact that alone in the Ramban District about 600 posts of Lecturers and teachers are lying vacant, which has badly suffered the education system in the district. Same is the position of the other districts of the state particularly in the rural areas.
