Govt organises students' tour for only one region
Anger brews up in Jammu, Ladakh

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Nov 23: Anger is brewing against the government for taking students on a tour to various states of the country this winter only from one region. The government is planning to take 10,000 students on the tour in the country from Kashmir but the authorities have sidelined students from Jammu and Ladakh region.
"We are not against taking students from one region on a tour, but what about students of other two regions," said Suresh, a student from Gandhi Nagar Jammu.
He said that government should tell about the reasons for taking students on the tour from only one region.
"Are we not part of this state?" asked, Murtaza, a student from Leh. "There should be equal treatment to students of all three regions of the state," he said.
Ashfaq Ahmad, a resident of Doda said that students of all three regions should get equal treatment. "Every student of the state want to go on such tours," he said.
The tour is planned under the aegis of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), a centrally-sponsored scheme of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The tour is likely to start from December and conclude by February 2018. "It is basically an exposure visit of 10,000 students through RMSA. The offer we have received is for Rajasthan, Delhi, Bangalore, Haryana, and few other states where the educational reforms have been implemented and the sector is advanced," Director Education Kashmir, G N Itoo has told media in Kashmir.
Apart from sightseeing, the students would also visit schools and interact with the students, he has said.
Itoo said that only students of government schools studying in classes 9th to 12th will be a part of the "package".
The number was approved during the meeting of Project Approval Board (PAB) on March 10, which finalised the 2017-18 work-plan and budget of RMSA in J&K.
Held in New Delhi, the meeting was attended by top officials from both MHRD and J&K Education Department.
An official of RMSA said that although the Centre has approved the tour and the number of students, it is yet to finalise the money that would go into making it possible.
Earlier, the PAB had approved a cost of Rs 49.10 lakh, Rs 2,000 per student, for the planned 2,455 students.
As such 10,000 students on tour should fetch a bill at Rs 2 crore even if one calculates on an unrealistic expenditure of Rs 2,000 per student.
