Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 20: Up in arms against ignoring Chowki Choura Block for establishment of new Government Degree College, locals under the banner of Block Congress Committee Chowki Choura today held a day long hunger strike in front of SDM Office here today.
Shouting slogans against the BJP-PDP government, the protesting people were demanding sanctioning of Degree College in this remotely located area. The hunger strike was led by Sr Vice President J&K PCC and former minister Sham Lal Sharma and other prominent locals.
Speaking on the the occasion, Sham Lal Sharma said that after the introduction of the Right to Education Act, Government is bound to provide quality education to the students and extend regular support for higher education in far flung area of Chowki Choura, which mostly comprises of lower economic class families .
"Due to no Government Degree College in the area, a number of students, particularly girls are forced to discontinue their studies after class 10th & 12th," He said and warned that if the Government does not concede this genuine demand of the people, they would have no option other than to launch an agitation in this regard.
He said people have made repeated requests to the government for opening of GDC but to no avail. He further said that the BJP though making tall claims for improving the education standard in the state, but the government has closed down various schools in Jammu and have utterly failed in providing the educational infrastructure in the educational institutions.
