Police raids unjustified :CCA
Srinagar, Jan 10: Coaching Centres’ Association (CCA) on Thursday called on Director Education MS Rather and discussed various issues confronting them including raids by police.
In a statement, publicity secretary of the Association Hamid Mufti said a delegation led by its Chairman GN Var met Director Education and expressed serious concern over raids on coaching centres by police.
“The Chairman apprised the Director Education about the grave situation which has emerged due to police raids disturbing the routine class work affecting the careers of thousands of students preparing for various competitive and entrance examinations scheduled to be held in the first week of April 2013,” the general secretary said. "Police raids on coaching centres are unjustfied" he said.
He claimed that the Director while appreciating the role of private sector in education assured of every help to improve the functioning of coaching centres in dignified way. Government has tightened noose on the coaching centres in the aftermath of acid attack on a teacher at Parraypora area here.
“The Director Education stressed upon the coaching Centre to register themselves within the stipulated time frame and abide by the guidelines as laid down by the Government. The Association while welcoming the guidelines assured the Director Education that they will abide by the rules and play its rightful role to streamline the noble calling of coaching,” he said.
“The Association also resolved to launch a campaign for redeeming the image of the coaching centres as it was felt by the members that certain vested elements had been deliberately trying to tarnish the image and credibility of this noble cause. Such elements were called upon to have a re-look at recent past when the entire government education system collapsed and the public were left with no option other than the private tuitions,” he said.
He said during the meeting, the rules and regulations governing the Association were also framed. “It was decided that the membership shall be open to all the competent Coaching Centres across the Valley. In this regard, the Association has decided to hold a joint meeting of all the Heads of Coaching centres on Sunday January 13,” he added.
