TOP STORY OF THE DAY
What a joke! J&K ranks No. 2 in Education, Environment Sectors
11/21/2017 10:54:44 PM
Early Times Report Jammu, Nov 21: It's surprising despite Jammu and Kashmir lagging far behind in Education and Environment sectors, the state has been ranked as 2nd in both these sectors in the latest India Today annual 'State of the States' ranking survey. Apparently it seems that India Today's survey is based on the figures provided by the sources which are close to people in power as the ground situation contradicts the survey report. It's an established fact that toilets, drinking water, laboratory, library and play fields are basic necessities of any educational institution. Thousands of Government schools in J&K are without these facilities thus puncturing the tall claims of PDP-BJP coalition government about turnaround in the education sector. As per the figures which were released by School Education Department earlier this year a total of 32,554 schools are without basic facilities like toilets, drinking water, own building, compound walling, laboratory, library a...

Though the state authorities are busy patting their backs for what they term as a "remarkable achievement", they have perhaps become ostriches- unaware about the ground beneath them. The government has been eu...
