Jammu Tawi, December 14
Infuriated by the obnoxious move of the State Government to demolish Girls High School for the sake of construction of the Parking lot , Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Former Education Minister along with other party leaders visited the deserted school to express his solidarity with the aggrieved parents and the students at City Chowk, Jammu today. The Panthers Party leaders assured full support to them in all odds and circumstances. While addressing the gathering, Harsh Dev Singh lambasted the State Government and BJP in particular for proposing to bulldoze the Govt. Girls High School, City Chowk and shifting the students to some other school for the construction of parking facility under the pretext of rationalization of schools. He said that the schools were the temples of learning and any move to raze them to the ground for the convenience of the vested interests was highly insane and sacrilegious. He regretted that the BJP which proclaimed itself as the messiah of the Dogras had now turned morally decadent and such deplorable proposals had only unveiled its treacherous character. Mr. Singh wondered that what type of rationalization of schools was mulled by the State government in which the educational institutions were supposed to be demolished and obliterated to meet the vested ends. He said that BJP under the garb of the concept was only interested to construct parking facility for the convenience of the
influential people including the MoS School Education
who were living in the
vicinity and nothing else.
He said that Panthers
party shall stand toe to toe and shoulder to shoulder with the students and resist all such moves of the State government come what may.
Others who accompanied Harsh Dev Singh included Rajesh Padgotra, Shyam Gorkha, Gagan Pratap, Purshottam Parihar, Udeyveer, Sansar Chand besides others.
