GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 27: As if this heritage educational institution for the female folk had been a smoking hub that the Principal Government College for Women, MA Road, Prof Mushtaq Ahmed Wani has declared it as “smoke free zone” adding that anyone caught smoking would be booked under law.
An official handout said the Principal announced this during an anti-tobacco awareness programme held in the College, which was attended by Food Safety Officer Shabir Ahmed Lone and AK Wani, Senior Programme Manager, J&K Voluntary Health Association and students and staff members of the College.
The Principal alongwith the delegates put up anti-tobacco signatures in and outside the Institution.
He announced that “smoking in the college premises and within 100 yards of the college has been prohibited by government and anyone found smoking will be booked under law.”
He also authorised the College Sports Officer as his designated officer, to whom complaints against smokers can be lodged.
Interestingly, smoking among females has hardly been ever heard of in this conservative society.
